Your IRA can provide a tax-smart way to make an impact with St. Christopher's School now. The Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD (sometimes called an “IRA Charitable Rollover”) is a great way to make a tax-free gift now to St. Christopher's School and satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), too.

How Do I Qualify?

The Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) offers multiple benefits for making gifts from your IRA.

  • You must be 70½ years or older at the time of the gift.
  • Gifts must go directly from your IRA to St. Christopher's School.
  • For 2024, total QCD gifts cannot exceed $105,000 per donor.

Benefits of Qualified Charitable Distribution

  • If you don’t itemize your income tax deductions, a QCD offers all of the benefits of an itemized income tax charitable deduction
  • If you are age 73 or older and must take a Required Minimum Distribution RMD, a QCD gift can satisfy your RMD without increasing your income taxes.
  • You may direct your gift to a program or area of your choice.
  • It is a wonderful way to create an immediate impact on St. Christopher's School.

Miles Cary, Jr. '51, P’85“I received a first-class education at St. Christopher’s during my 11 years at the School, along with a healthy dose of athletics. The emphasis placed on learning to speak, read, and recite on my feet before an audience served me well in my legal career. I have included St. Christopher’s in my estate plan to ensure that the faculty and facilities of the School continue to promote the invaluable experience that I had during my time there.”
