Charitable Gift from Your IRA

You can make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA and make an immediate impact. Here’s how it works:

  • You must be 70 ½ or older.
  • An individual may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $200,000.
  • Your gift must be transferred directly from your IRA account to the HRC Foundation.
  • Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to the HRC Foundation, so while you do not receive a charitable deduction, it does not create taxable income for you.
  • If you are 72 and older, the transfer of funds counts towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution* from your IRA.

If you’re interested in this popular way to support HRC, download a sample letter for your IRA administrator here.

* Congress has waived the annual Required Minimum Distribution from IRA Accounts in the year 2020 as part of the CARES Act in response to COVID-19. Please consider seeking advice from your financial advisor or tax professional to understand how recent changes to laws governing retirement plans may impact you and your charitable gift.

Memorial or Tribute Gift

Honoring a person’s memory is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. You can preserve their legacy by having their name promote equality and the work of the Human Rights Campaign. Upon making a memorial donation, a representative will be notified of the contribution you made in their loved one’s name. Learn more here.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

You can use stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to ensure equal rights for all people through the HRC Foundation. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
