Give Directly from Your IRA

Make an immediate and powerful difference in the lives of our neighbors with a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) directly from your IRA.

To help ensure that we can rescue and deliver as much food as we can for New Yorkers in need, consider making a Qualified Charitable Distribution. If you are 70½ or older with a traditional IRA, you are eligible to donate to City Harvest and receive tax benefits in return.

Learn more about how you can help us feed fellow New Yorkers by making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) directly from your IRA, tax free, using our free online giving tool.

Many of our generous IRA donors have also asked how the CARES Act affects QCD giving. The CARES Act waived the required minimum distribution (RMD) from your IRA for 2020, but you still get the same tax benefits from making a QCD as opposed to donating a direct cash gift.
