"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21
God is generous and He calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the Gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

If you are 70½ and are required to take a minimum distribution from your IRA, please click on the link below to learn more about giving through a Qualified Charitable Distribution
What is a qualified charitable distribution?
Generally, a qualified charitable distribution is an otherwise taxable distribution from an IRA (other than an ongoing SEP or SIMPLE IRA) owned by an individual who is age 70½ or over that is paid directly from the IRA to a qualified charity. See Publication 590-B, Distributions from Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) for additional information.
Can a qualified charitable distribution satisfy my required minimum distribution from an IRA?
Yes, your qualified charitable distributions can satisfy all or part the amount of your required minimum distribution from your IRA. For example, if your 2018 required minimum distribution was $10,000, and you made a $5,000 qualified charitable distribution for 2018, you would have had to withdraw another $5,000 to satisfy your 2014 required minimum distribution.
How are qualified charitable distributions reported on Form 1099-R?
Charitable distributions are reported on Form 1099-R for the calendar year the distribution is made.
We at Sagemont Church want to provide some “layman friendly” estate planning information that can enable you to protect your family and be a wise steward of what He has entrusted you with.
So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, kick off your shoes and browse around. If you just want to get down to business, you can click on the PhilanthroCorp link and walk yourself through a tutorial/data gathering process (Estate Plan Organizer link). At the end, you can print it at home or ask for help. All of the information you log in is confidential. The Estate Plan Organizer does not ask for social security numbers or bank account numbers. No one will see your entries unless you submit at the end and ask for help.
In that case, one of our partners at PhilanthroCorp (a Christ-centered estate planning firm) will be in touch to serve you in any way they can. So, be blessed and make yourself at home!
