Other Ways to Give
Beginning at age 70-½, you must withdraw a certain amount from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), this is called a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). With a traditional IRA, your contributions were not taxed. Required Minimum Distributions are taxed. But there is a way to lower your taxes on the RMD and help Alexandra House, Inc. You can take some or all of your RMD and donate it directly to a charity, like Alexandra House, through an IRA charitable distribution. An IRA charitable distribution is a way you can help continue our work and benefit this year. 401Ks must first be rolled over into an eligible IRA account to qualify for this benefit.
To donate to Alexandra House through a charitable distribution, contact your IRA administrator and make a request. To discuss your IRA charitable distribution gift or inform us of a gift you have already made, please contact Tina Bronson, Director of Mission Advancement, at 763-656-1363.
