WK Preservation Group Steadfast Toward Environmental Stewardship Goal With $1.5 Million From Pinellas County

Qualified Charitable Distribution

QCDs are a great way to support the issues you care about and avoid tax penalties. Transferring directly from an IRA to a qualified charity, such as Pinellas Community Foundation, counts toward your required minimum distribution from your retirement savings account and is not reportable as income. PCF can work with you to design a personalized plan to help your favorite charities, avoid capital gains, bunch donations in specific years, and save on income taxes. When considering your legacy, future generations, and the community you love, please consider Pinellas Community Foundation as your partner.
