Congress passed a law in December 2015 which permanently allows you to make tax-free charitable gifts from your IRA. If you are 70 ½ or older, rather than simply take your withdrawal this year, you can direct your IRA administrator to distribute a gift from your IRA to the Dominican Friars. As this is a transfer of funds, you do not report this as taxable income and therefore you will not pay taxes. Your gift goes towards all or part of your minimum distribution requirement. You benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions. Your donation can help impact and transform the lives of all those the Friars will reach with the saving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
To make your IRA gift, simply contact your IRA provider. You may need to provide them with our Tax ID number which is EIN 26-3273636. Please contact us when you make your gift as some IRA providers do not list the donor’s name along with the check and to let us know how you would like your gift to be used.
If you have any questions, please email Diana Kilarjian, Director of Planned Giving, at email@example.com or call 646-350-0108.
Gifts From Your Donor Advised Fund
Make a Grant Recommendation. You can make a gift to the Dominican Friars by recommending a grant from your donor advised fund. You will be helping the Friars to restore virtue and morality and to build up a culture of life for generations to come.
Name the Friars as Beneficiaries to Continue Your Support After Your Lifetime. You can name the Dominican Friars Foundation as a beneficiary of your account, or a portion of it, to continue your support of our mission.
