Congregation Kehillah can accept a gift through your IRA-qualified charitable distribution (QCD)?
If you are 70 ½ years or older and born before July 1,1949 or 72 years or older and born July 1, 1949 or later, you can transfer funds from your IRA or other qualified retirement plans directly to a qualified charitable organization, such as Congregation Kehillah. This type of contribution, known as a QCD, can be a very tax beneficial means of charitable giving. This gift distribution counts toward the Minimum Required Distribution (MDR). Your Financial Adviser can advise you of the accounts that qualify and arrange for the QCD distribution.

Purchasing your final resting place (plots) at Mt. Sinai Cemetery benefits Congregation Kehillah?
Mt. Sinai Cemetery, 24210 N 68th St, Phoenix, AZ 85054, will make a donation to Kehillah once they receive payment in full. By creating an advance plan, you will reduce the number of decisions your family members must make during a stressful time.
