Charitable Gift Funds and IRA Distributions
Donor Advised Funds
Many donors have Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) through a community foundations or one of the large investment firms (Fidelity, Vanguard, etc.). DAFs allow donors to set aside funds now for giving later.
Charitable IRA Rollover
If you are 70 1/2 years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit Mount St. Mary’s Seminary and School of Theology and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 annually from your IRA directly to a qualified organization without having to pay income taxes on the money.
The Charitable IRA Rollover is a smart, unique way to support our mission: You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions. If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, an IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
