IRA Gifts

House of Ruth supporters 70.5 or older have a unique opportunity to support women and children rebuilding their lives from homelessness and abuse — all through their retirement savings. IRA qualified charitable distribution (QCD) gifts help to reduce your future tax burden and can help you meet your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the current calendar year, all while making an impact.

  • To make a QCD gift, please contact your IRA administrator (Fidelity, Schwab, Vanguard, Raymond James, etc.)
  • Request that your QCD be transferred to House of Ruth, 5 Thomas Circle NW, Washington, DC 20005.
  • Ask your IRA administrator to include your name and address for acknowledgement purposes.
  • Please also email egjovik@houseofruth.org to notify us of which company is sending the QCD, along with the approximate value, so we can be sure to send you a tax acknowledgement letter. (Oftentimes, the financial company does not include the donor name and address.)
