IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

If you are age 70 ½ or older, the IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) allows you to take the required minimum distribution from your individual retirement account, skip the tax and make a meaningful gift to support Auburn University.

Because Auburn is a nonprofit organization, there is no tax paid on the transfer. All or part of your required minimum distribution may be met, and the money goes straight to work supporting a program or cause you care about at Auburn.

How to make a QCD:

  1. Request a QCD form from your investment company.
  2. Complete the form and return it to your investment company.*
  3. Let us know you are making a QCD gift and how you want it to be used by emailing or calling (334) 844-7375.
  4. That’s it – you’re done!

* Use the following information on the QCD form:
