Are you 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA? 

You can help nurture a thriving Market community by making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to the Pike Place Market Foundation. And, depending on your age*, your donation can help to fulfill your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and reduce your overall tax liability.

We have partnered with FreeWill to make this process as easy and stress-free as possible.

You can donate quickly and easily today with this IRA Donation Tool:

Many supporters like you choose to make these gifts because of how easy we’ve made the process. In a few minutes, you can receive significant tax savings and make a big impact on our Market community. Without you, there is no us.

* If you turned 70.5 before or 72 after January 1, 2020, then you must make a Required Minimum Distribution from your retirement accounts.

You may roll over up to $100,000 per year to a qualified charity.  

No. However, you can name a charity or a donor-advised fund as a beneficiary of your IRA upon death.
