If you are 70½ or older and have an IRA, you are already qualified!
How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) works
You are at least 70½ years old with IRA funds you no longer need.
You make a QCD from your IRA.
Your QCD goes directly to Habitat, supporting a cause you care about.
*If you are 73 years old or older, your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD)!

Discover the benefits of a QCD
Reduce your taxable income
When you take funds from your IRA, they count as taxable income. But if you transfer them directly to charity, you reduce your taxable income while satisfying your RMD.
Fulfill your required minimum distribution
After you turn 73, you must distribute funds from your IRA. If you do not distribute the required minimum, you may be penalized, but a QCD allows a transfer up to $100,000 per individual or $200,000 per couple to satisfy your RMD.
Transform the world
When you make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to Habitat for Humanity, you will help us change the world for future generations.
