If you are 70½ or older and have an IRA, you are already qualified!
How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) Works
You are at least 70½ years old with IRA funds you no longer need
*If you are 72 years old or older, your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD)!
Did You Know?
You can also support our mission for years to come. Simply name the USO as a beneficiary of your IRA account, and the remaining assets (or a portion) of the account will be distributed to help us support those who sacrifice so much.
Sample Beneficiary Designation
Legal name: United Service Organizations, Inc.
Address: 2111 Wilson Blvd., Suite 1200, Arlington, VA 22201
Federal Tax ID number: 13-1610451
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.
Fulfill 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.
Transform the World
When you make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to the USO, you will help support future U.S. service men and women around the world.
“When my husband Dave was a fighter pilot in the Vietnam War, your organization was there with services and holiday shows that meant a lot to him. He never forgot the good works of the USO and I shan’t either. Having the convenience of showing my support with a QCD is an added benefit.”
—P. Sullivan, QCD Donor
