Qualified Charitable Distributions from Your IRA
You must be 70-1/2 years or older to be eligible to make a QCD and the maximum annual amount that can qualify for a QCD is $100,000. Funds distributed directly to you, the IRA owner, and which you then give to charity do not qualify as a QCD. Webster University is a 501(c)(3) organization, eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions. Contact your IRA custodian for full details.
Gifts in Memorial or Tribute
Honor a mentor, colleague, or loved one by making a gift in tribute or memory of them by filling our Memorial/Tribute Gift Form (PDF opens in new tab).
Name Webster as a Beneficiary (Will, Retirement, Investment)
Gifts through your will or retirement plan allow you to maintain your assets during your lifetime, and potentially reduce taxes on your estate, while ensuring your legacy and Webster’s long-term future. You may indicate that Webster is to receive the entire amount, specific property, a specific amount, a percentage, or a portion of the balance remaining (residue). You can direct your gift to a particular purpose.
If you have a bank or investment account to give directly to Webster University, ask your bank manager or officer of your financial advisor for the appropriate form. Usually, a "pay on death” (P.O.D.) provision for a bank account or a CD or a “transfer on death” (T.O.D.) provision for certain other investment accounts is all that is needed. Notify Webster of your intentions using the Bequest Intention Form (PDF opens in new tab) or by contacting the Office of Advancement. Webster University (ID 43-0662529) is located at 470 E Lockwood Ave, St. Louis, MO 63119.
