IRA Rollover

A direct transfer from your IRA can be a great way to make a tax-wise gift while supporting the Catholic Appeal.  A qualified transfer will count towards your required annual IRA minimum distribution and be excluded from your gross income.  To qualify for these benefits:

  • You must be age 70 ½ or older at the time of the gift
  • Your gift must be made directly from your IRA to the “Archdiocese of Boston for the benefit of the Catholic Appeal”
  • You may transfer up to a total of $100,000
  • The gift must be outright and cannot be used to create a gift annuity or charitable trust.


This opportunity may have great tax benefits for you, while also providing critically needed support for our ministries.  Here is some helpful information to contribute to the Catholic Appeal through a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA:
