The people who give to Cancer Care Services and the people who volunteer - I can't even begin to say thank you enough for what they've done for my family, and for me.
Contribute to Cancer Care Services
For nearly 75 years, Cancer Care Services has been continuously providing financial and emotional support services to cancer patients, caregivers, and survivors in our community.
We serve individuals of all ages, cancer types, and income levels.
Programs and services are provided to all residents of Tarrant County, at no cost to them.
We are fortunate to live in an area where many employers choose to support the charitable interests of their employees by providing matching gifts to eligible, charitable organizations to which their employees also make donations. A few of those companies are:
Alcon, American Airlines, AT&T, Bank of America, BNSF, Carmax, EOG Resources, ExxonMobil,
General Electric, GM Financial, JPMorgan Chase, Justin Brands, Lockheed Martin, Merrill Lynch, PepsiCo, Starbucks Foundation, Textron, Walmart, and Wells Fargo.
For assistance enrolling in your employer’s matching gift program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are age 70½ or older, IRS rules require you to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) each year from your tax-deferred retirement accounts. To eliminate or reduce the impact of RMD income, charitably inclined investors may want to consider making a qualified charitable distribution (QCD).
A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from an IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity, as described in the QCD provision in the Internal Revenue Code. Amounts distributed as a QCD can be counted toward satisfying your RMD for the year, up to $100,000, and can also be excluded from your taxable income. For answers to specific questions about your personal accounts, please contact your financial advisor.
The Rules of QCDs
A QCD must adhere to the following requirements:
- You must be at least 70½ years old at the time you request a QCD. If you process a distribution prior to reaching age 70½, the distribution will be treated as taxable income.
- For a QCD to count toward your current year’s RMD, the funds must come out of your IRA by your RMD deadline, which is generally December 31 each year.
- Funds must be transferred directly from your IRA custodian to the qualified charity. This is accomplished by requesting your IRA custodian to issue a check from your IRA payable to the charity. You can then request that the check be mailed to the charity or forward the check to the charity yourself.Note: If a distribution check is made payable to you, the distribution would NOT qualify as a QCD and would be treated as taxable income.
