Qualified Charitable Distributions

If you are 72 or older, you can donate up to $100,000 per tax year directly from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to charities like World Food Program USA.

These Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD)—also known as IRA charitable rollovers or IRA gifts—may be excluded from your taxable income and qualify toward your required minimum distribution (RMD).

Contact your IRA administrator to make a gift to World Food Program through your IRA.
