Give from an IRA, 401(k) or other tax-deferred savings account

This is a giving opportunity worth considering for people who are at least 70½ years of age and drawing income from a tax-deferred savings account such as a traditional IRA, 401(k), 403(k), 403(b) or Thrift Savings Plan. Up to $100,000 of your required minimum distribution (RMD) can be tax-free when you give to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization like Alabama Arise through a qualified charitable distribution (QCD).
