  • You can satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
  • You can reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
  • You pay no taxes on the transfer.
  • Your gift to Conserving Carolina will make a meaningful impact upon the conservation and land protection in western NC
