I just wanted to make sure you knew that you can in fact send your IRA Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) to IHS Foundation. We cannot however put that contribution into your Donor Advised Fund. What we can do is put it into the Foundation’s General Fund, which our Board oversees. Then, if and when you desire to make a charitable distribution from the Foundation to a ministry of your choice, you would address that recommendation to our Board of Trustees. Our Board then approves that recommendation and we send out the distribution (not from your DAF but from our General Fund) as recommended by you.

            This may sound like a longer way to accomplish a fairly simple objective, however it complies with all IRS rules and regulations and auditing standards. The enclosed brochure gives a bit more information regarding making a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA. Please call me with any questions!

Best regards in Christ, Rob
