The OSA has been very fortunate to receive very generous donations to help rebuild Guest Lodge, buy the pier at Blackhawk, rebuild all the firebowls, buy new circus tents, build shower houses and build and buy many other items for Owasippe. Did you know that the IRA qualified charitable distribution (QCD) option allows taxpayers age 70½ or older to use up to $100,000 of IRA assets per year as a tax-free contribution to qualifying charities. Historically, these distributions were allowed on a temporary basis and had to be renewed by Congress. Going forward, taxpayers age 70½ or older have until December 31 each year to make tax-free QCDs from their IRAs.

Note: This information is provided for general interest/information purposes. IRA account owners should consult a tax professional with questions regarding charitable donations.

If you would like to make a donation please send it to The Owasippe Staff Association, P.O. Box 7097, Westchester, IL 60154
