Gifts made from your individual retirement account (IRA) directly to CVNM can allow you to make a significant contribution while avoiding a tax liability.

People who are age 70 ½ or older can contribute up to $100,000 from their IRA directly to a charity and avoid paying income taxes on the distribution. This is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). In order to benefit from the tax advantage of satisfying all or some of your Required Minimum Distribution through a QCD, the gift must be issued directly from your IRA custodian to CVNM.
