Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs)
Supporters 70.5 or older with a traditional IRA are eligible to make a donation to Montclair Art Museum directly from their IRAs. These gifts are tax-free, regardless of whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return, and can help you avoid tax penalties by fulfilling your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). You can use our online tool to make your tax-free donation online, print out the forms you need to complete the gift offline, or learn more about the benefits of giving from your IRA.
Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds because it can have a large impact on our mission while maximizing potential tax benefits by avoiding paying tax on capital gains.
If you would like to transfer your appreciated stocks online to Montclair Art Museum, you can use our online tool to walk you through the process in less than 5 minutes.
