Shadowcliff Opens for the Season on Memorial Day. Now Taking Reservations!

Healing • Growth • Interconnection • Community • Affordability

As we approach the end of this incredible year, we would like to provide some helpful information to those aged 70 1/2 and up, as you may qualify to save on taxes by giving to Shadowcliff! 

Beginning at 70 ½, if you have an IRA you must withdraw a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) annually.  However, that income is not taxed if you contribute it to a qualified charity such as Shadowcliff. This Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA to the qualified charity. It enables you to support Shadowcliff with your gift and enjoy a significant tax break, even if you take a standard deduction.
For more information on the advantages of a QCD, click here for more information and consult your tax advisor.
And another wonderful resource, Shadowcliff friend, Lina Stein is offering a webinar this month. Here's a link to her website.

 Choosing the Right Charities with the Right Tools

November 18 at 12:00 MST

I am excited to share with you that I am hosting a 45-minute webinar on November 18, 2020 at 12:00 MST where I will discuss the basics on how nonprofit funding works, tips on how to vet nonprofits, and the differences in making gifts direct to charity, through a donor-advised fund, through a community foundation, or through a private foundation.
I will also be discussing changes the SECURE Act made to inherited IRAs and how charitable techniques may help offset the tax implications.
