Planning Your IRA Withdrawal Strategy?
Please Consider Making a Charitable Donation Through a QCD
If you are 70-½ or older, you are eligible to make a Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD). This a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity such as Mujeres en Cambio. The main benefit of making a QCD is that the amount donated is excluded from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare.

About Your Donations, Where and How They are Used
A scholarship from Mujeres en Cambio makes it possible for a girl from a rural village with a good GPA to continue her education—from secundaria (junior high school) and preparatoria (senior high school) through university.
Throughout the school year we distribute scholarships to our qualifying students every two months. To qualify, the girls must bring their scholastic records proving that they have maintained a high GPA; the girls must have a minimum GPA of 8.5.
