Ways to Give

When I think of stewardship season and why I’m called to give, I’m reminded of the Psalmist’s words in Psalm 24:1,

“The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it.”

How wonderful would it be if we lived our lives as if this verse was true? Imagine a world where we felt one with God and one with our neighbor. Perhaps there would be less comparison and competition, and more humility and respect. Stewardship is about recognition and responsibility. It is about opening our eyes and recognizing all we have comes from God. Along with recognition comes a deep sense of responsibility. This allows us to do for others as it has been done for us. Giving of our time and our talent in the church today is a way we can live this out. It is the definition of our baptismal covenant. It is through this covenant that unites us to God and to others. This covenant is the essence of our being. All things created by God belong to God. The life we live can be a reflection of God’s goodness and his grace. Who we are can be an image of the living God. Giving back is a way we can actively share with others the truth that we all belong to God.

Qualified Charitable Distributions
A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is generally a nontaxable distribution made directly by the trustee of your IRA (other than a SEP or SIMPLE IRA) to an organization eligible to receive tax deductible contributions. You must be at least age 70½ when the distribution was made. Also, you must have the same type of acknowledgment of your contribution that you would need to claim a deduction for charitable contribution. See Records To Keep in IRS Pub. 526.

The maximum annual exclusion for QCDs is $100,000. Any QCD in excess of the $100,000 exclusion limit is included in income as any other distribution. If you file a joint return, your spouse can also have a QCD and exclude up to $100,000. The amount of the QCD is limited to the amount of the distribution that would otherwise be included in income. If your IRA includes nondeductible contributions, the distribution is first considered to be paid out of otherwise taxable income. Please consult your tax professional concerning any questions.
