Charitable IRA Rollover
If your IRA's required minimum distribution (RMD) is causing you to pay higher taxes even if you don't need the money, then a Charitable IRA Rollover may be the answer. It allows anyone aged 70½ and older to make direct transfers of up to $100,000 per year from individual retirement accounts to qualified charities without having to count the transfers as income for federal tax purposes, yet are eligible to be counted toward an individual’s required minimum distribution.

To ensure a strong future for St. Patrick’s Seminary & University, the institution and its mission is reliant upon the generosity of others, today and tomorrow.

Remembering St. Patrick’s in your estate plans can also assist in meeting your financial and tax-planning needs. Whether through bequests, charitable remainder trusts, or other means, gifting St. Patrick’s through Planned Giving is a wonderful way to fulfill your philanthropic wishes and honor a lifetime of generosity.
Those who have designated St. Patrick’s in their estate plans are recognized as members of the Archbishop Riordan Legacy Society.
