Giving through a donor-advised fund

  1. Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor.
  2. Include the tax ID of your designation.
  3. Indicate whether your gift is designated to a specific program or area of greatest need. IRA Charitable Rollover gifts If you are 70 ½ or older, you can direct up to $100,000 each calendar year to a qualified charity directly from your IRA.

Note: Under the SECURE Act, which took effect in January 2020, the age at which required minimum distributions, (RMDs) must start increased to age 72. Despite the delay in the starting age for RMDs, Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) from IRAs were not affected. For that reason, QCDs may still be taken from IRAs as early as age 70 ½.

Gift planning

Unlike cash donations, planned gifts, also referred to as “deferred gifts,” are typically made from assets in your estate, rather than through use of disposable income. There are several ways to make a planned gift:

  • Giving a bequest through your will or trust offers a way to support Saint Agnes without impacting your discretionary spending.
  • Life income gifts allow you to make a gift and receive income back for life or a term of years for you or a member of your family.
  • Beneficiary designations of your retirement account or insurance policy are easy to implement and can be completed through a change of beneficiary form.

Other creative gift plans provide opportunities to transfer ownership of real estate, personal property, or another assets to Saint Agnes. We are happy to meet with you to discuss these options and develop a plan that is ideal for you.

Every dollar donated to the Saint Agnes Foundation propels our Mission and our people forward.
