There is the option to give a gift of stocks, bonds, or other investment securities (including mutual funds). This option may also yield tremendous tax benefits for you and RCS. Contact the Department of Advancement at (507) 424-1817 for additional information.
If you are 70 1⁄2 or older, one of the most tax-efficient ways to give is through an IRA charitable rollover. This opportunity can allow you to satisfy your annual required minimum distribution (RMD) and reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions. RCS and Lourdes Foundation, Inc. do not offer tax or legal advice. Please consult with your tax advisor regarding your specific situation and the proper steps to donate.
Each year, several corporations match gifts to RCS through matching gift programs. Gifts can be matched by the employer of the donor or the donor’s spouse. You may wish to check with your employer for the possibility of matching funds or RCS is delighted to investigate this for you. This is an excellent way to exponentially increase gifts to Rochester Catholic Schools!
