Qualified charitable distributions

If you’re 70-1/2 or older, you can donate up to $100,000 per tax year directly from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to charities like Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD) are a great way to support our lifesaving work by allowing your dollars to go further: QCDs may be excluded from your taxable income and qualify towards your required minimum distribution.

If you’d like to make a QCD gift, your financial institution should make the check out to “Doctors Without Borders” and identify you as the donor by name and address.

They can mail the check to:

Doctors Without Borders USA

P.O. Box 5030

Hagerstown, MD 21741-5030
