Maximize Your Giving

Did you know that at age 70½ or older, IRS rules require you to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) each year from your tax-deferred retirement accounts? Those funds can then be used to make a BIG difference in your community as Qualified Charitable Distributions! Join us to learn the ABCs of RMDs and QCDs from Justin Nurenberg and April Jonatzke of the Edward Jones office in Buchanan. Coffee and light refreshments will be served at this free event. Thursday, November 14, 1:00pm
