Qualified Charitable Distributions
Is an IRA qualified charitable distribution (QCD) right for you?

If you are 70½ or older, making a qualified charitable contribution (QCD) from your IRA to CPC can be a meaningful way to make an even bigger mark on our pro-life ministry to help women and families in crisis choose life.

And if you are age 72 or older, the government mandates you to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your IRA — leading to taxable income for many. A QCD can count toward your RMD requirement while also benefiting an organization like CPC. However, in order to count toward your RMD, your IRA charitable contribution must be made before your RMD limit is met.
Here’s how it works:

  • You transfer your gift — up to $100,000 annually — from your IRA directly to the Center for Pregnancy Concerns and/or other charities.
  • Because IRA charitable distributions don’t increase taxable income, higher tax rates can be avoided.
  • An IRA charitable distribution can potentially enable you to give a bigger gift than if you donated cash or other assets, maximizing generosity and impact.

Our Mission
The Greater Baltimore Center for Pregnancy Concerns is a locally organized and funded volunteer ministry demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ by providing abortion alternatives to women who find themselves in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy. We service clients by addressing their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. We also strive to provide accurate and complete information on prenatal development and abortion. We believe access to this information is needed in order to provide our clients with the facts, allowing them to make informed decisions. Ultimately, we desire to protect the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of our clients and their unborn children. We also provide emotional support and resources to any woman who comes to us having had an abortion. We believe our ministry to these and all women is to share the love of Jesus Christ.
