Seven months of 2019 are over with five months remaining to accomplish everything we planned to do this year. If you plan to contribute to the Pardee Foundation’s mission of supporting Pardee UNC Health Care, why wait until December?
If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a Qualified Charitable Distribution at anytime during the year simply by writing a check on your IRA. The Pardee Foundation, as a 501(c)3 organization, can accept a QCD check drawn from an IRA. Giving now could help you to avoid the last-minute rush of the holidays when everything is so hectic with too many things to do and places to go and when it’s so easy to overlook things.

If you do not have an IRA checkbook, please contact your IRA administrator. More companies who manage retirement accounts are issuing IRA checkbooks to make it easier and simpler to reach your annual required minimum distribution (RMD). Charitable gifts to Pardee Foundation can count towards your RMD so you could scratch two items off your year-end list: reaching your RMD to avoid the punitive penalties; and supporting our beloved hospital to avoid paying taxes.
You can designate your gift to any program or to our general funds to meet the most pressing needs of Pardee. Your support helps us to continue providing exceptional healthcare close to home.
If you have any questions about qualified charitable distributions, please contact Jim Brewer at 233-2710. Thank you for supporting Pardee. We are grateful.
