Are You Thinking of Using Your RMD for Charitable Giving?
If you are over the age of 70 ½, the government requires you to take annual distributions (withdrawals) from your retirement account—a provision known as the required minimum distribution (RMD). Up to $100,000 of your annual RMD from IRAs may be distributed directly to a qualified 501(c) (3) organization, enabling you to avoid paying income taxes on that amount. This option is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD).
The Foundation’s Core Pillars are to promote education, reduce hardship, and provide In Memorial grants for the justice and law enforcement community.
We are committed to promoting education by offering scholarships for educational and professional development to Members and their families.
Sometimes it seems impossible to overcome life challenges. We provide grants to reduce hardship and improve the lives of Members and their families who through no fault of their own have experienced injury, illness, catastrophic life event, or natural disaster.
In Memorial Grants
We provide in memorial grants in support of law enforcement killed in the line of duty, and offer assistance to their families and co-workers left behind to cope with their tragic loss.
In Their Own Words...
A Justice Federal Member and former State Police Trooper with a Presidential commendation had his livelihood impacted by a health condition that unfortunately affected his ability to earn a living for his family. The Foundation approved a hardship grant to assist his family by easing their bill paying monthly stress, providing essentials, and moving them towards financial stability.
“From the bottom of my heart, I extend my sincerest gratitude to each person who played a part in making this happen. My family and I will be forever grateful to each of you. I declare that I won’t be in this place long: therefore, in the future I too will be donating to this awesome fund to better someone else’s life.” — Harold

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart… the JFCU Foundation has been a blessing to me and my family. Thank you, God Bless.” — Larry

"It is a privilege to be one of the Founders of the Justice Federal Credit Union Foundation. Just as the Credit Union proudly serves the financial needs of the law enforcement community, the Foundation serves to assist Members and their families who through no fault of their own have experienced injury, illness, a catastrophic life event or natural disaster with hardship grants. The Foundation is a noble and worthy non-profit organization, dedicated to the support of our law enforcement community. I hope you will consider a contribution to our Foundation today.” — Tom Wiseman, FBI, retired
