Gifts from your IRA (Qualified Charitable Distributions)

Donors 70.5 years and older who have a traditional IRA are eligible to make a tax-free donation directly from their IRA to the American Heart Association called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Generally speaking, these gifts are tax-free and can be a smarter way to support AHA this year.

For those 72 and older, QCDs can count towards your required minimum distribution, allowing you to use your IRA to support heart healthy lives today, tomorrow, and for generations to come. 

Using this online tool, you can:

  • Give directly to AHA from your IRA
  • Estimate the amount you are required to take from your IRA this year if you are 72 or older (required minimum distribution)
  • Request a tax acknowledgement letter for a gift you’ve already given to the AHA

If you have any further questions about the benefits of IRA giving, please email [email protected] or call 888-227-5242.
