Your generous, tax deductible donation to Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services will make a positive difference in the lives of veterans and their families. Don’t just make an investment. Have an impact.

There are different ways to support and partner with Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services – all of which provide relevant, objective, and trusted counsel to inform, influence and inspire your organization to impact the lives of our veterans and their families.

Dixon Center is an IRS-qualified public charity as part of the 501c3 Fedcap Rehabilitation Services Inc., EIN # 13-5645879. We routinely develop partnerships with corporations, charitable company foundations, large and small family foundations and we can develop business to business relationships to create real solutions to the challenges our veterans face.

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services develops partnerships with corporations and foundations to build capacity focusing our influence, ideas, and actions across three pillars:

  • Work with Purpose—creating pathways to careers where veterans earn a family wage and have affordable healthcare and benefits. Careers that allow veterans to set and meet their future goals.
  • Heal with Honor—connects to wellness and the need for veterans to not just survive, but thrive as they recover from trauma.
  • Live with Hope—is related to the key issue of affordable housing— living in a safe, secure, and comfortable setting in harmony with a local community, where a veteran can function independently and contribute to society as a private citizen.

As Dixon Center continues to grow, our commitment to ensuring that veterans and their families have the supports and services they need within the communities they live is stronger than ever before.

Sustained funding will allow Dixon Center to continue to identify the evolving needs of veterans and military families and deliver those services to enable productive, successful lives. We hope you will consider partnering with us to  safeguard continuation of vital programs and services designed to care and support those who have served and defended our country.

If you have any questions about developing a strategic partnership or would like to learn more about any of these options, please reach out to our Director of Development, Vanessa Stergios at vstergios@dixoncenter.org or call 330-705-4262.

Retirement Assets, IRAs, and Required Minimum Distributions

Retirement Assets, IRAs, and Required Minimum Distributions

Your generous, tax deductible donation to Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services will make a positive difference in the lives of veterans and their families. Don’t just make an investment. Have an impact.

Starting at age 72 (70 ½ if you reach this age before January 1, 2020), the IRS requires individuals to make IRA withdrawals each year. Known as Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs), the IRS imposes a fine, equivalent to half of the RMD, for failing to withdraw minimum distributions. With this requirement, giving from an IRA has become a tax-efficient way for individuals to make charitable contributions.

A Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD) is a direct transfer of funds from an IRA custodian (e.g., Vanguard, Schwab, Fidelity, etc.) made payable to Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services or another qualified charity, in the account owner’s name.

An individual may donate any amount up to $100,000 through a QCD annually. This amount applies to the sum of QCDs made to one or more charities in a calendar year. A spouse, who files jointly, may donate up to an additional $100,000 within the same tax year.

The deadline for QCDs is Dec. 31 for that calendar year. Please contact our Director of Development, Vanessa Stergios at vstergios@dixoncenter.org who can work with your IRA custodian for instructions.

Remind your financial institution to include your name and mailing address on the check or in an enclosed letter and clarify that the donation is a QCD.
