It brings me great joy to make significant charitable gifts while I’m at this stage of my life. I’m grateful this is possible through the IRA charitable rollover. I encourage others to support hope and healing in our community by designating a portion of your IRA required minimum distribution to the Des Moines Pastoral Counseling Center. It’s win-win, the satisfaction of helping others while also enjoying a greater tax benefit.
