Qualified Charitable Distribution

You may be looking for a way to make a significant impact in furthering our mission of ending homelessness, one life at a time. If you are 70 or older, you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. A qualified charitable distribution (also known as an IRA charitable rollover) is a way you can help continue our work while also improving your immediate tax situation.
