Retirement plan account - Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)


A wonderful way to support INLC is to donate all or part of your retirement account’s “required minimum distribution” (RMD) to the Conservancy. Most IRAs call for RMDs when the owner turns 70½.  This amount is typically taxed unless it is given to one or more qualified charities. The contribution needn’t be large for INLC to benefit. Truly, any amount is appreciated. 


Wes Hanson has donated part of his RMD to the Conservancy for the past two years. Wes explains, “Doing this helps fund the Conservancy’s essential work and reduces my taxable income. Both the Conservancy and I benefit greatly from this donation.”  


To contribute in this way, just let your retirement plan account holder know that you want to donate to INLC, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in the State of Washington in 1991 and registered as a nonprofit charitable organization in Washington and Idaho.
