How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) From Your IRA Works
You are at least 70 ½ years old with IRA funds you no longer need.
Make a QCD from your IRA*.
*If you are 73 years old or older, your QCD can count toward your required minimum distribution (RMD)!
Your QCD goes directly to City of Hope, supporting breakthrough treatments and research.
Did you know?
Under the Secure 2.0 Act, you may be able to make a one-time QCD to fund a charitable gift annuity, a gift that offers lifetime payments and still removes the distribution from your taxable income. Please contact us at 800-232-3314 or email@example.com for more details.
You can also support our mission for years to come by naming City of Hope as a beneficiary of your IRA account. You can designate City of Hope to receive a percentage of the account value, leaving the remainder to your heirs.

Tax Law Disclaimer
- The SECURE Act raises the required minimum distribution (RMD) age. If you turn 70 ½ on or after January 1, 2020, you can now wait until you are age 73 before you must take an RMD from your IRA.
- You can still make a gift to City of Hope and other charities through a QCD starting at age 70 ½. However, if you make IRA contributions after age 70 ½, as allowed under the SECURE Act, the amount you have available for QCDs is reduced. Please consult your tax or financial advisor to learn how this may impact you.
- The SECURE Act repeals the maximum age for making IRA contributions. You can now contribute to your IRA even if you are over age 70 ½ (subject to annual limitations).
- The SECURE Act decreases the time over which inherited IRAs may be distributed. Inherited IRAs must now be distributed completely within 10 years of the IRA owner’s death, unless the IRA beneficiary is the surviving spouse, disabled or chronically ill, less than 10 years younger than the owner, or the owner’s minor child. Under these rules, naming City of Hope as a beneficiary of your IRA while using other assets to benefit family members may be a taxwise charitable planning decision.
