Qualified Charitable Distribution

You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). This is an effective way to have an immediate impact and further our work of improving care and cures for patients with blood cancers. Here’s how it works:

  • You must be 70 ½ or older.
  • An individual may transfer up to a total of $105,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $210,000.
  • An individual may take a one-time QCD up to $53,000 to fund a charitable gift annuity (CGA) or charitable remainder trust (CRT).
  • Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
  • Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to LLS so it does not create taxable income for you and is not considered a charitable tax deduction.
  • If you are 73 and older, the transfer of funds counts towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution* from your IRA.

Memorial or Tribute Gift

When you give a memorial or tribute gift for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to honor someone special, you’re expressing your love, admiration, and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute, and drive impact extending beyond just blood cancer.
