Qualified Charitable Distributions/IRA Rollover Contributions
Are you 70 ½ or older with a traditional IRA? If so, you may be eligible to make a tax-free gift from your IRA called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)! QCDs are always tax-free, regardless of whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return.
To make your tax-free gift in just a few minutes, use our free online tool. Simply fill out the information online, print the form at the end, and follow the instructions to mail to your IRA custodian.
For your peace of mind, this tool doesn’t ask for sensitive information like account numbers or social security information.
Make an outright gift of cash or appreciated stock
If you have appreciated stocks, transferring them directly to United Way of Martin County is a powerful way to make a greater impact on our community. It is also a way to avoid the capital gains tax, making this a savvy giving choice.
Include United Way of Martin County in your will or trust
One of the most powerful ways to advance Martin County for the common good is to include the United Way of Martin County in your will.
To make this process easier than ever, we’ve partnered with FreeWill to give all of our supporters the opportunity to write their legally valid wills online for free. In less than 20 minutes, you will have a will that is valid in all 50 states.
If you have a more complicated estate, FreeWill can be used to create a set of documented wishes to bring to a lawyer’s office and save time and money.
