IRA Contributions

Guideposts' supporters age 70½ or older are eligible to give a tax-free gift directly from their IRA to make an immediate impact on our work.

Retirement plans may create an income tax problem for heirs. Leaving all, or a percentage, of your retirement plan to Guideposts may offer a tax savings to your estate. Simply name Guideposts as a beneficiary of your retirement plan. 

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs), also known as IRA Charitable Rollovers, are a smart way for individuals to use their IRAs to maximize their charitable impact.

Thanks to our partnership with FreeWill, you can make your QCD gift quickly and hassle-free by beginning your forms online. You can also choose to print out blank forms to complete by hand or transact the gift over the phone with your financial custodian.
