As a valued supporter of the arts in our community, your contribution plays a crucial role in the growth and sustainability of MSAC.

Qualified Charitable Distribution — a permanent giving option

Many donors feel that directly transferring funds from IRAs is a great way to help families and create a legacy. This is now a permanent option.

  • You must be 70½ or older.

  • An individual may transfer up to a total of $105,000 per year, and a married couple may give up to $210,000.

  • An individual may take a one-time QCD of up to $53,000 to fund a charitable gift annuity (CGA) or charitable remainder trust (CRT).

  • Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to Habitat.

  • Your generous gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to MSAC, which means it does not create taxable income for you and is not considered a charitable tax deduction. This ensures that your donation is utilized to its fullest potential.

  • The transfer of funds counts toward your annual Required Minimum Distribution* from your IRA.
