Give to VBCF

“I’m a survivor. I’m here. I’m healthy and I want every woman who has faced the same diagnosis and challenges that I have to be able to say the exact same thing. You are not alone. This fight against breast cancer is a fight we can win, it’s a fight we will win, and it’s a fight that will be won with information.”

Catina Jones, VBCF Board of Directors, Richmond, VA

IRA Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs)

One way to help others and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer is through charitable giving through a retirement account. An option to consider, especially for those who are age 70.5 or older, is giving to the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation directly from your individual retirement account (IRA) Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). RMDs are annual distributions that you must take from your traditional IRA account once you reach age 70.5, and they are generally considered taxable income. However, by directing your RMD to VBCF, you can reduce the impact of taxes on your income while also supporting an important cause.

This is known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) and can be a tax-efficient way of donating to a charity like VBCF. However, it is important to note that the contribution cannot be used as a charitable tax deduction, so if you are looking for a bigger tax benefit, you may want to consult a tax advisor for guidance.

These distributions must usually be made by year’s end and the check must be transfered diretly from your IRA custodian to VBCF, not from you personally. Most IRA plan sponsors will need to be contacted by early December to ensure timely distribution.
