Please Consider Tax Free Gifts to Hokuloa from Your Retirement Fund

Consider tax-advantaged charitable donations. Many retired people are required to take a minimum amount out of our retirement plans. Taxing authorities, both federal and state, want to make sure that some amount of money “sheltered” in tax deferred IRA Savings accounts is taken into income in the current year – and TAXED! The IRS has many rules regarding MINIMUM REQUIRED DISTRIBUTIONS (MRDs). 
How to minimize this problem:  The IRS allows Gifts and Donations to Charities such as Hokuloa UCC to qualify for these Minimum Distributions, while NOT being subjected to Income Taxes (in other words – Tax Free!). 
If you are fortunate to have a IRA and are more than 70½ years old – please  consider a Qualified Charitable Distribution(QCD) to Hokuloa UCC. You can give for any specific purpose like the new Church Signs or for unrestricted general use.The donation to Hokuloa should be made directly by the IRA plan sponsor (your Bank, Brokerage or other organization) and sent directly to the Church before the end of the year. Know that the amount of the QCD counts towards your MRD, but is not taxed. It will be up to you to let the IRS know about the contribution by including certain information on your tax return. To help navigate the rules on these donations, contact your plan advisor. If you’d like to discuss this with Malcolm Greenlees or Yvonne Leiser, please contact the church at We will be glad to help you and help the Church with donation options.
