If you are 72 or older and have an IRA, a Qualified Charitable Distribution may be made to CUMC. Such a distribution helps satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). A distribution to the Church is not included in your income and thus effectively lowers your tax bill even if you take the Standard Deduction and do not itemize.
Note that the distribution must be made through your IRA account custodian directly to Catonsville UMC.
