IRA Charitable Rollover
If you are 70 ½ or older you can use your IRA to fulfill your charitable goals and support scholarships for deserving students. Congress has enacted a permanent IRA charitable rollover. The IRA charitable rollover is also called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Individuals may direct that their annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) be sent directly to charitable organizations such as CCSF. Individuals may transfer up to $100,000 each year. Please note that IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction. However, the donor does not have to claim the distribution as income.

Wills & Trusts

​An excellent way to support the students served through the Cedarburg Community Scholarship Fund is to remember us through a bequest in your will or living trust. Your bequest will be added to our general scholarship fund assisting students from our community. You can also create an endowed scholarship fund in your name or in honor of a family member, teacher or someone who had a positive impact on your life.
