“My tax preparer told me I could contribute to nonprofits [by making a Qualified Charitable Distribution] from my IRA as a way to reduce my tax burden. I arranged to contribute from my [IRA] to the four organizations I gave the most money to on a yearly basis. The process of getting the necessary information for the person who handles my investments required a few phone calls, but that was more than worth it given the tax savings. And as a result of those savings, I was able to increase the amount I gave to each organization. We contribute because I have never seen a nonprofit that could improve and save so many people’s lives with more efficient use of funding than RESULTS.”
