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 charity, you reduce your taxable income while satisfying your RMD.

Fullfill your required minimum distribution (RMD)

After you turn 72, 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.

Help transform lives in Jesus' name

When you make a qualified charitable distribution to Dallas Seminary Foundation, you help educate the next generation of ministry leaders, transform lives, and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ through our graduates.

“Giving directly from our IRAs is a wonderful way to support the mission and work of Dallas Theological Seminary. Not only is it convenient, but the withdrawal is excluded from our taxable income, so it saves us money in taxes. It just makes a lot of sense.” — Walt and Anne Waldie
