I made a call and it started leading to good things. My oldest daughter is a schoolteacher, how about that? She never knew I couldn’t read. I wish I had done it sooner.

Planned Giving: IRA Charitable Rollover
Congress changed IRA laws with the SECURE Act. Before the Act, taxpayers aged 70½ or older had to take a minimum distribution from their IRA. Now the age is 72. An opportunity that remains in place is to direct some or all of these distributions to charity and not pay taxes on the distribution. Contact your IRA administrator to tell them you intend to make a “qualified charitable distribution” to Literacy Together.
84.6% of expenses go directly to program services*
*Includes the value of contributed services according to audited 2020-2021 financial statements.
