IRA Donations and Estate Gifts

Just a friendly message for your consideration…

Section 408(d)(8) of the Internal Revenue Code and the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 allows you to donate all or a portion of your IRA distribution to charity (VMMissions) as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), so it is not deemed taxable income.

How to make a gift to VMMissions:

  • Contact your IRA custodian and request that a gift be sent to VMMissions. Many custodians have a form that needs to be filled out and signed by you to process your gift.
  • Please allow for up to several weeks for your IRA custodian to process your request.
  • Inform VMMissions so that we can give you an official letter of acknowledgment.

Estate gifts or a charitable bequest to VMMissions
Virginia Mennonite Missions welcomes you to remember its ministry and mission by designating a portion of your estate as a bequest for VMMissions in your last will and testament.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact Aaron Kauffman at [email protected] or by phone at (540) 434-9727.
