Federal Tax Identification number: 20-4450092

Direct the final distribution of funds remaining in your DAF

When you create your donor-advised fund — or update your existing succession plan — you can indicate whether assets remaining in the account will be distributed to charities of your choice or successor advisors. If you are naming beneficiaries, please consider including the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles.

Gift of stocks or mutual funds

Many people are surprised and pleased to learn that donating appreciated securities that you have owned for at least a year is one of the best and easiest ways to maximize your gifts to the Benedictines of Mary and other causes you care about.

Here’s how it works:

  • If you donate appreciated securities directly to charity, you do not incur capital gains tax, so your gift is at least 20% more valuable than if you sell your investment and then donate the after-tax proceeds.
  • Your gift is tax deductible for its full value on the date of your gift.

Gift from your IRA

If you are 70½ years old or older, making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA offers many advantages, and it’s easier than you may think.

This kind of gift is uniquely impactful for both the Benedictines of Mary and you as it immediately furthers our mission to spread devotion to Divine Mercy and Mary Immaculate and to assist the Holy Souls while reducing your taxes.

The more you know:

  • Your QCD is not included in your income, so you are not taxed on it.
  • A QCD is not deductible as a charitable gift, so it is an attractive option when you are going to claim the standard deduction on your income taxes.
  • A QCD will not increase your annual income level, so it will not increase your Medicare premiums and it may decrease the amount of Social Security that is subject to tax.
  • If you are 73 or older (or have been required to take an RMD in the past), these funds count toward your RMD!

Give from your IRA

You can request a QCD from your IRA custodian, using these instructions:

  • Make the check payable to “Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles” and note “Qualified Charitable Distribution” in the memo line.
  • Mail your check to:
    Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles
    8005 NW 316th Street
    Gower, Missouri 64454

It’s possible that the IRA custodian will not share your name and address with us. Please let us know when you make a gift so we can make sure to thank you and ensure that your gift gets to where it’s intended.
