Regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, geography, age, or socioeconomic status, the Disney Family Fund provides support, education, and connections when people impacted by Alzheimer’s or dementia need them most.

In 2007, Earl created the Toba Fund to honor his beloved wife’s legacy to ensure that others would not have to face Alzheimer’s alone. Since its creation, it has raised over $700,000, providing 1:1 care counseling at no cost to anyone who needs information, education, and support from our dementia specialist social workers. Although Toba died in January 2011, Earl remained passionate about making a difference until he passed in 2016. Today, Alzheimer’s Los Angeles honors their love and legacy through the Toba & Earl Greinetz Fund.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

Qualified Charitable Distributions

Did you know you can donate your required IRA minimum distribution to Alzheimer’s Los Angeles?

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA payable to a qualified charity. QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, as long as specific rules are met:

  • The distribution must be made directly from the IRA to the eligible charity to qualify for the tax deduction.
  • You must be 70½ or older to be eligible to make a QCD.
  • QCDs are limited to the amount that would otherwise be taxed as ordinary income (excludes nondeductible IRA contributions).
  • The maximum annual amount that can qualify for a QCD is $100,000 per person.

The amount donated to charity is excluded from taxable income, unlike regular withdrawals made from a traditional IRA.
