Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

Are you 70 ½ or older? Do you have an IRA?
A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a tax-smart way to give a gift to The Dudley Foundation. The value of these gifts is not counted as part of your adjusted gross income, so you will not pay income taxes on the amount distributed directly as a gift. And once you turn 72 you can use your gift to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution.  And this tax benefit does not depend on itemizing. If this is something you wish to consider, please contact your IRA coordinator for instructions on how to direct your IRA. The Dudley Foundation’s tax identification number is 06-1409967.


The Dudley Farm Museum welcomes volunteers to maintain the house and grounds, staff the office, plan activities and greet visitors. If you would be interested in contributing your talents and skills please contact the museum office by phone, mail or email.
