Instructions for giving your IRA minimum distributions to Metro Lutheran

Because you intend to roll some or all of your annual required distribution from your IRA to Metro Lutheran, you can use this form to help you communicate with the custodian of your IRA. It will be considered a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), which means it will roll over without tax consequences to you if it goes directly from your custodian to the seminary.
Please print this form, fill it out, and send or fax it to the custodian of your IRA account per the custodian’s instructions. Be sure to date and sign it, so it can be considered a legal request for rollover of funds.
You should assume your custodian will expedite the rollover because this is a required distribution, but you should monitor its progress to be sure the December 31 deadline is met.
