IRA Distributions / QCDs

Qualified Charitable Distributions

Donating through your retirement account

Did you know that you can send your donation to All Classical Radio directly from your retirement account? Contributing through a retirement account, formally called a Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD, is an increasingly popular method of giving for many donors.

Whether you are required to take an annual distribution, or seeking an opportunity to support the causes you believe in, a Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD may be the right choice for you. QCDs are an easy and efficient way to support All Classical Radio. You may contribute all or part of your distribution to support the music you love, and there are often tax benefits for donors who contribute by IRA/QCD.

If you are already taking annual distributions from your retirement account, or if you are considering making charitable gifts through your account, your account custodian or financial advisor can assist you in making a QCD to All Classical Radio.

  • How do I set up an IRA?
    Your financial institution, tax professional, or other financial advisor can help you learn about IRAs and set up or update your account.
