WELCOME TO THE RICHARDSON WIRELESS KLUB - K5RWK!

RWK, an ARRL Special Service Club, serves the Richardson community by providing self-supporting special event and emergency communication networks. RWK also promotes amateur radio to the public in Richardson and the surrounding area as a useful, life-long hobby.

Our club is comprised of individual amateur radio operators (hams) with a wide range of interests and skills. We strive to increase the number and quality of fellowship and amateur radio learning opportunities. Our membership includes hams in Richardson and the surrounding communities, ranging from teenagers to radio pioneers in their 80s plus!

RWK provides an organizational structure and opportunities that assist members to maximize their knowledge and enjoyment of amateur radio through fun, fellowship and unique learning experiences. RWK is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Tax relief for your Required Minmum Distribution (RMD) 

If you are over 70½ you can arrange for a direct distribution of amounts from your IRA, 401(k), pension plan, or similar retirement plans directly to qualified charities (including The RWK) of your choice. Distributions made in this manner are not included in your taxable income. Such distributions do not also qualify as an itemized deduction, but do qualify as part or all of your annual Required Minimum Distribution from such plans. Lowering your taxable income may save taxes on your social security income, keep you out of a higher tax bracket, and be of great benefit if you take the standard deduction instead of itemizing.
 
There are some timing requirements and limitations; if you would like to consider this approach in making a charitible donation to The Richardson Wireless Klub, please contact your tax advisor and our This email address is being protected from spambots.
