Annual minimum contribution
If you're fortunate enough to not need your annual minimum distribution, we would welcome your funds as a gift to our mission.
"Your required minimum distribution is the minimum amount you must withdraw from your account each year. You generally have to start taking withdrawals from your IRA, SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA, or retirement plan account when you reach age 72. Roth IRAs do not require withdrawals until after the death of the owner." (See IRS.gov)
