GET INVOLVED: DONATE


Additional giving opportunities
for the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels and the Franciscans of the Eucharist of Chicago
As the Mission continues to acquire property and young people continue to join our community, we have begun to research additional giving opportunities.  Please contact Sr. Stephanie at olamission@gmail.com or 773-486-8431 if you would like to learn more or contribute in any of the following ways:

Donating appreciated assets is easy and is a great way to maximize your charity contribution tax benefit. Please contact Sr. Stephanie at olamission@gmail.com or 773-486-8431 to talk about your donation. To preserve the tax advantages of a donation of appreciated assests, you must transfer the shares directly to us. Please consult your finacial advisor before your donation.

Donors aged 70½ or older can transfer up to $100,000 from their IRAs and other retirement income sources directly to Mission of Our Lady of the Angels (and other qualified charities) without it being considered a taxable distribution. The deduction effectively lowers the donor's adjusted gross income (AGI) as well.
Funds must transfer directly from your IRA custodian to the “Mission of Our Lady of the Angels, 3808 W. Iowa St., Chicago, IL 60651” in order to avoid a taxable event.

A recap of the IRA charitable rollover rules (consult your financial advisor for details specific to your situation): 

  • If you are 70½ or older, you can give up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to charities such as Mission of Our Lady of the Angels as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD).
  • You pay no income tax on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions.
  • The gift can satisfy all or part of the required minimum distribution for the year.
  • The transfer may be made in addition to any other charitable giving you have planned.
  • You must distribute the gift amount directly from your IRA. It is important that you do not withdraw the funds prior to making your gift.

Please let Sr. Stephanie know at olamission@gmail.com / 773-486-8431 if you plan on making a gift in this way! Thanks!
