Don’t need your IRA retirement savings as much as you once thought?

Learn more about how a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) can benefit you.

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.

Make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA.

Your QCD goes directly to the Seraphic Mass Association to support Capuchin missionaries and the people they serve.

*If you are 73 years old or older, your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD)!

Did You Know?

You can also support our mission for years to come. Simply name the Seraphic Mass Association as a beneficiary of your IRA account, and the remaining assets (or a portion) of the account will be distributed to help us serve those who live under the most challenging circumstances.

Sample Beneficiary Designation

Legal name: Seraphic Mass Association, Inc.
Address: 5217 Butler St. Ste. 100, Pittsburgh PA 15201-2657
Federal Tax ID number: 25-0974329

Discover the Benefits of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

Reduce Your Taxable Income
When you withdraw funds from your IRA, they count as taxable income. But if you transfer them directly to the Seraphic Mass Association, you reduce your taxable income while satisfying your RMD.
Fulfill Your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)

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 $105,000 per individual or $210,000 per couple to satisfy your RMD.

Transform the World

When you make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to the Seraphic Mass Association, you will help create a legacy that supports Capuchin missionaries and brings hope to the people they serve.

God’s been very good to me. I made this gift from the bottom of my heart.
