Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD): A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) gives individuals who are at least 70 1/2 years old the ability to gift to the Foundation as much as $100,000 directly from your IRA. Since the IRA withdrawal substitutes for your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), you save on taxes while having a strong, positive impact on your community.

Matching gifts: Many companies have matching gift programs and will match employee donations up to a certain amount, increasing or even doubling the value of your gift. Contact your company to learn more about their matching gift program.

Make a gift in your will: We invite you to learn more here.

Thank you for giving back to Cambridge today!
