Qualified Charitable Contribution

An opportunity to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution

If you are 70 ½ years or older you may make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA to Scouting in Central Texas without paying federal income tax.

The funds transferred will count toward your required minimum distribution. Transferred funds do not qualify for a charitable deduction, but are not counted as taxable income.

Your disbursement must come directly from the administrator of your IRA to Capitol Area Council, Boy Scouts of America. You cannot receive the funds first.


Assume your required minimum distribution for the year, which you are required to take by December 31 is $25,000.

In November, you make a $25,000 Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to the Capitol Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, endowment (qualifying you for recognition in Scouting’s Second Century Society).

The QCD satisfies your $25,000 Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the year. While the $25,000 distribution is generally not tax deductible, your tax benefit comes from excluding the $25,000 from your annual gross income.
