Perhaps link to various charities and their costs.

Any thoughts?

I like it. I'll think about contributing to your site. I was specifically looking for the comparison of fees. I suggest that other donor-advised funds be added. The following article might be worth discussing here as well... Perhaps in a section called Objections raised after the section on advantages.

Here's the reference in human readable format: Donor-Advised Funds Let Wall Street Steer Charitable Donations, Alan Cantor, Chronicle of Philanthropy, October 28, 2014. Viewed November 16, 2015.

This reference does provide a balanced perspective. Should the article be:

  • A new "Criticisms of..." section (per Wikipedia format for opposing views),
  • Added as an External link, or
  • Discussed in the forum to get a consensus?

A google search of this criticism (Donor-Advised Funds Let Wall Street - Google Search) shows the article and several Wall Street articles, but nothing substantial from authoritative sources. I closed the feedback comment. --LadyGeek 10:58, 28 December 2017 (EST)

Qualified charitable distributions

I can no longer locate the previous page (or section) related to Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs). Now that QCDs are permanently in US tax law, we should add a dedicated page or insert content into an existing page.

I have some info in this Bogleheads® forum post: RMD/QCD [Qualified Charitable Distributions]. Where can QCDs be inserted? --LadyGeek 17:05, 13 July 2016 (EDT)

QCDs are briefly mentioned here: Taking Withdrawals, which should be consolidated with the proposed content. --LadyGeek 19:50, 13 July 2016 (EDT)

Qualified charitable distributions has been created. --LadyGeek 22:04, 9 August 2016 (EDT)

footnote (7) An extra $250 annually is charged for balances under $15,000; . . .

Any thoughts?
