Participate in Give to Lincoln Day via IRA QCDs

When you reach a certain age, the federal government requires you to withdraw or distribute a portion of your IRA investment and consequently pay taxes on the amount withdrawn. By using a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to support a qualified charity, those funds are transferred directly to that charitable organization, tax-free. 
This year’s Give to Lincoln Day is Thursday, May 30. Join Lincoln’s One Big Day of Giving by using Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) from your IRA to support your favorite registered nonprofits. 
Here’s how…

  1. Contact your IRA administrator about your annual distributions. Decide your total donation for Give to Lincoln Day this year. 
  2. Request your IRA administrator distribute an IRA QCD directly to Lincoln Community Foundation, mailing the distribution to the Foundation at 215 Centennial Mall South, Suite 100, Lincoln, NE 68508. Please request that your name be included on the check.
  3. Complete the LCF form for IRA QCDs gifts, listing the amount for each nonprofit you wish to support, and return it to the Lincoln Community Foundation
