If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit High Fives and receive tax benefits in return. You can give any amount up to $105,000 per year from your IRA directly to High Fives Foundation without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover.
