Qualified Charitable Distributions


A Smart Way to Make an Impact Now
If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit MPFI and receive tax benefits in return. You can give any amount up to $100,000 from your IRA, directly to a qualified charity such as MPFI without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover. Be sure to check with your financial advisor to determine whether this gift is right for you. Download the sample letter for your IRA administrator. If you have any questions, please contact our Advancement Team at (561) 972-9027 or Giving@mpfi.org

Make an Impact Tomorrow
No matter your age, you can designate MPFI as the beneficiary of all or a percentage of your IRA and it will pass to us tax-free after your lifetime. It's simple, just requiring that you contact your IRA administrator for a change-of-beneficiary form or download a form from your provider's website.  

Tip: It is critical to let us know of your gift because many popular retirement plan administrators assume no obligation to notify a charity of your designation. The administrator also will not monitor whether your gift designations are followed. We would love to talk to you about your intentions to ensure that they are followed. We would also like to thank you for your generosity.
