    TPMF may also be listed as a beneficiary for life insurance policies, or become a designee in your estate planning. Verify including donation information with your estate attorney, or private estate planner. For questions on estate documentation, contact Stan Churchwell, DPM, JD.

    If you are 70-1/2 or older, you are eligible to make a Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD). This a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity such as TPMF. The main benefit of making a QCD is that the amount donated is excluded from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare. For additional information about QCDs, please speak with your tax advisor.
