Friend and supporter Tommie was introduced to Chosen People Ministries in 1973 when her mother-in-law shared one of the ministry’s magazines with her. After reading it, Tommie’s heart was stirred to the importance of our mission and the troubles that the Jewish people have suffered. She wanted them to know Jesus as Messiah and Savior!
In 2006, Tommie received an email about giving from her required IRA distribution. Her financial institution also informed her of this tax benefit. Now, she is thrilled that, through her gifts from her IRA distribution, she is able to give more to Chosen People Ministries and save on taxes, too. Tommie says, “I give according to how the Lord leads me … and consider the IRA, Jesus’s IRA.”
You, too, can make a wonderful difference through your wise stewardship!
If you are age 70½ or older, you can transfer up to $100,000 from your traditional individual retirement account (IRA) to a qualified charity without adding a penny to your taxable income.
This is possible when you make the donation as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) — with a direct transfer of the amount you choose from your IRA to Chosen People Ministries. A gift like this may also lower your adjusted gross income, and:
- Lower your tax bracket
- Lower your Medicare premium
- Lower your federal taxes
- Reduce your state taxes
Most importantly, you will make a tremendous impact … helping to share the message of Jesus the Messiah with Jewish people everywhere — and we are grateful! Thank you!
