At Haywood Street we celebrate communion every week — and not just at the altar table.

Around the kitchen table in Respite and at every Downtown Welcome Table meal, communion happens. Over a cup of coffee in the Hospitality Room and in conversation around the picnic table, communion happens. Relationships are every bit as important as the food we serve, the medical respite care we provide, and every other thing that happens on our campus.

Thank you for helping to make it all possible.

IRA Qualified Charitable Distributionn:

The IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) allows individuals age 70½ or older to make an outright gift of as much as $105,000 annually to Haywood from a traditional IRA. The distribution amount may count toward your annual required minimum distribution (RMD) and possibly lower your ordinary income. Although the RMD is not required until age 73, the QCD can be particularly beneficial for donors who do not itemize and instead file the standard deduction. The QCD must be paid directly from your IRA to Haywood. If the funds are distributed to you first, it may trigger a taxable event. It is recommended that any QCD made is discussed with your tax advisor to ensure it is accounted for correctly on your tax return. Find a downloadable sample letter for your IRA plan provider HERE..
