Donate Distributions from Your Traditional IRA

The charitable IRA rollover may be a great option for you if you pay federal income tax on unneeded, but required distributions from your traditional IRA, even if you do not itemize deductions on your taxes. Here’s how it works: once you reach 70 1/2 years, you can make gifts of up to $100,000 per year to qualified charitable organizations, like Paul’s Place, directly from your IRA. These gifts count toward the required minimum distributions you must take annually from your traditional IRAs, but are not included in your adjusted gross income.

Learn more about what you should consider before making a donation to Paul’s Place from your traditional IRA and contact Bill McLennan, Executive Director, at or 410-625-0775 x114 to discuss this gift option.

Get a Maryland State Tax Credit for Your Contribution

Paul’s Place has been awarded state tax credits to support construction of our new culinary arts training program in 2019. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to fully leverage these tax credits and launch a training program that will prepare 60 graduates per year for jobs with good pay and opportunity for advancement. Your contribution of $1,000 or more may qualify you for a 50% Maryland state tax credit on your 2019 tax return – in addition to your charitable deduction on your federal and state taxes, if you itemize.

Community Investment Tax Credits will be available in 2019. To learn more, contact Jenn Walen, Development & Communications Manager, at or 410-625-0775 x124.
