Can I give stock or mutual Funds?

You can donate it to the NSCCC Fidelity account and take a tax deduction for its full market value: Please contact EMC Chair for more information.

Can I use a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)?

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) allows individuals who are 70½ years old or older to donate up to $100,000 total to one or more charities directly from a taxable IRA instead of taking their required minimum distributions (RMD). QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your RMD for the year, as long as certain rules are met. In addition to the benefits of giving to charity, a QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Reducing your taxable income may have other tax impacts so please consult your tax preparer or accountant.
