IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution 


If you are 72 (or turned 70-1/2 years of age or older in 2019 or earlier), the Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is now a permanent way to reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.

            Groundswell Conservancy, Inc
            303 S Paterson St, Suite 6
            Madison, WI 53703
            Federal Tax ID # 39-1452825

Your IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution gift can satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) in whole or in part. Although it avoids income tax on that amount of your RMD, it does not qualify for a further charitable tax deduction. Please contact Heidi Habeger if you wish that your gift be used for a specific purpose.

Stock Gift

By giving appreciated property like stocks or bonds, you can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation, receive a tax deduction for the full value of the gifts and support Groundswell at a lower cost to you. Please check with your tax advisor to determine the full deductibility of your donation.

When Groundswell receives a stock gift, our policy is to sell the stock as soon as possible after the receipt of the gift. If you wish to donate stock, please use the following procedure:

             Our DTC #0164 Code 40
