If you are 70 ½ or older and have an IRA, you are already qualified!
How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) Works
You are at least 70 ½ years old with IRA funds you no longer need
Make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA
Your QCD goes directly to Unbound, supporting the poor and marginalized of the world
*If you are 73 years old or older, your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD)!
Did You Know?
You can also support our mission for years to come. Simply name Unbound as a beneficiary of your IRA account, and the remaining assets (or a portion) of the account will be distributed to help partner with children and families worldwide so that they may create a path out of poverty.
Sample Beneficiary Designation
Legal name: Unbound
Address: 1 Elmwood Ave., Kansas City, KS 66103
Federal Tax ID number: 43-1243999
Discover the Benefits of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)
Reduce Your Taxable Income
When you take funds from your IRA, they count as taxable income. But if you transfer them directly to Unbound, you reduce your taxable income while satisfying your RMD.
Fulfill Your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
After you turn 73, you must distribute funds from your IRA. If you do not distribute the required minimum, you may be penalized, but a QCD allows a transfer up to $100,000 per individual or $200,000 per couple to satisfy your RMD.
Transform the World
When you make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to Unbound, you will help us empower individuals and their families for generations to come.
