AUTOMATIC CHECK DISBURSEMENT
An easy way to remain consistent in your SCAPC giving is to contact your bank to inquire about Automatic Check Disbursement. This is typically a free service by which your bank will cut and mail a check directly to SCAPC in the time frame that you specify (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.). Save a stamp and help ensure that your giving remains consistent!
Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) are tax-efficient methods of making charitable donations with funds from a Traditional IRA (or inherited Traditional IRA). Essentially, an account holder (or beneficiary) age 70 1/2 or older can transfer up to $100,000 each year directly to charity. While the distribution from the account can count toward the account holder’s annual RMD, it is not included as Adjusted Gross Income (AGI), and thus does not need to (and cannot) be included as a charitable gift itemized deduction, making it a ‘perfect’ pre-tax donation.
