Help us grow as a more equitable arts organization by recommending Marin Theatre Company as a grant recipient from your donor-advised fund.
- Under federal law, if any portion of your donation benefits are not tax-deductible, you may waive the tangible benefits or use a personal source to pay for the benefits value. This includes tickets to events.
- Not all donor-advised funds are equal, please consult your DAF manager, tax advisor, and/or legal counsel to determine tax treatment or other restrictions.
Qualified Charitable Distribution
Are you over the age of 70 ½ and have an IRA? Did you know you could direct donations from your IRA without being subject to any withdrawal taxes?
A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity. QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, as long as certain rules are met.
While many IRAs are eligible for QCDs—Traditional, Rollover, Inherited, SEP (inactive plans only), and SIMPLE (inactive plans only) — there are requirements:
- You must be 70½ or older to be eligible to make a QCD.
- QCDs are limited to the amount that would otherwise be taxed as ordinary income. This excludes non-deductible contributions.
- The maximum annual amount that can qualify for a QCD is $100,000. This applies to the sum of QCDs made to one or more charities in a calendar year. (If, however, you file taxes jointly, your spouse can also make a QCD from his or her own IRA within the same tax year for up to $100,000.)
- For a QCD to count towards your current year's RMD, the funds must come out of your IRA by your RMD deadline, generally December 31.
- Any amount donated above your RMD does not count toward satisfying a future year's RMD.
To make a Qualified Charitable Distribution submit a distribution form to your IRA custodian, requesting that the check be made payable directly to:

Mill Valley, CA 94941
