Gifts to the Mount from alumni, parents, trustees, employees, and friends sustain the academic excellence and individualized attention that have been hallmarks of a Mount education since the University’s founding in 1920.
Corporate sponsorships, grants and foundations also help to provide financial support that is critical to the University's future growth. Each student who attends the Mount benefits from the generosity and loyalty of our donors.
These gifts come in many forms:
- Mount Annual Fund donations,
- life income gifts
- scholarship endowment
- memorial contributions
- and special event support.
Special tax-free IRA gifts
For those aged 70½ or older, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts.
On December 18 Congress passed legislation retroactively extending the charitable IRA rollover for 2015 and makes this provision permanent for future years. A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from traditional or Roth IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as Mount St Joseph University free from federal income tax each year. There may also be state income tax savings. Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift.
To make such gifts, it is important to not withdraw funds prior to a gift, but have the gift amount distributed directly from an IRA to one or more qualified charities. For those with check writing privileges on their accounts, this may be the most efficient way to make gifts directly from an IRA.
Check with us, your IRA administrator or your tax advisor for more information.
