If you are age 70 ½, or older, you are able to transfer up to $100,000 from a traditional IRA, tax-free, to charity each year. 

 Simply tell the administrator of your 
IRA of your wishes and it's done.  

It will count as part, or all, of your required minimum distribution for the year and will not be added to your adjusted gross income.  

The gift won't be subject to tax, as it would if you were to take the distribution and then donate the cash to 
Saints Peter and Paul School.

Have you remembered 
Saints Peter and Paul School in your will?

These are benefactors who have indicated a gift to Saints Peter and Paul School in their estate plans by way of a will, charitable remainder trust, gift annuity, life insurance policy, or other means of a planned gift. 

By remembering our school this way, alumni, current or former parents, and friends are able to become perpetual partners with school.
