Your distribution can be used to annually meet the IRA required minimum distributions Please note the amount of the QCD excluded from gross income is not taken into account in determining any deduction for charitable contributions.


A very attractive alternative to making a cash contribution to Amistad is to gift stocks and mutual funds. It provides a tax advantage for you while creating a legacy investment for Amistad. For more information on how Amistad manages its investments, please see ARC Investment Policy Statement.

Like stocks and mutual funds, a planned gift can save estate and other taxes while sustaining Amistad well into the 21st century. Please consider making a bequest, donating retirement fund assets, or setting up a charitable gift annuity.
