IRA Donations

Make a Qualified Charitable Distribution: Often referred to as a QCD, a Qualified Charitable Distribution is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity.  Unlike a regular distribution from an IRA, amounts donated from your IRA using a QCD are not taxed as income to the owner. In addition, 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. The maximum annual amount that can qualify for a QCD is $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. Additional rules and stipulations may apply, so please consult with your accountant to verify you qualify for a QCD before making a donation.

Planned Gifts

Planned or deferred giving enables you to arrange charitable contributions in a manner that maximizes personal objectives and financial goals. Many plans provide flexibility during your lifetime, and the Eugene Education Foundation will realize their benefit sometime in the future. The most common types of deferred plans are bequests, retirement plan designations, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable gift annuities.



EEF deeply appreciates gifts made to our endowment, which lend enduring support to our work and allow us to build a brighter future for all students in Eugene. EEF’s endowment is managed by the Oregon Community Foundation. Please contact Executive Director Nancy Buffum to make your gift to the endowment.
