IRA-QCD ~ IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution, §408(d)(8)

If you are least age 72 (70 ½ if you reached 70 ½ before January 1, 2020) years young, you must begin taking IRA distributions. For some types of IRAs you can choose to direct a distribution to a qualified charitable organization, for a qualified charitable purpose, and thereby defer it as income.  COAR is ready for this. Please contact your retirement manager or firm to make sure of your own situation. 
Our receipt contains the gift details and this language:
“COAR Peace Mission is a charitable corporation under IRS section 501(c)3. Your gift is a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) in accordance with IRS regulations. No goods or services were received in exchange for this gift.”

Please tell us to expect a gift:
from whom (you), approximately when, the issuing company, the amount. 
If a check arrives without your name we cannot find out who gave the gift from the issuer.
