Qualified Charitable Distributions:
Donating Directly to the Museum from an IRA

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs), also known as IRA Charitable Rollovers, are the savviest way for individuals aged 70 1/2 or older to use their IRAs to maximize their charitable impact by donating to a nonprofit with a nontaxable required minimum distribution (RMD) in exchange for reducing income tax. Donations can be made in any amount.


Please consider speaking with your financial advisor today, and donating directly to the Museum for any level of an annual membership, as a general donation, or as a gift in honor/memory directly from an IRA account .
