Your legacy, their future.

A planned gift adds light to future Flyers. The most common types of planned gifts are gifts from a will, a trust, or retirement account, but can also include more-sophisticated plans such as life-income gifts (gift annuities and remainder trusts), real estate, or other tax-savvy contributions. The benefit of planned gifts is that they accommodate your unique financial circumstances, may allow you to make a larger impact, and you can give in a tax-smart way. Contact our team today to learn more.

Give a Qualified Charitable Distribution Through an IRA
Are you over the age of 70? If so, there is an excellent way to continue your support of the University of Dayton and lower your taxes! After the age of 70½, you can make a tax-free direct gift from your IRA, up to $100,000 per year, to eligible charities, like UD. The transfer does not create taxable income for you nor does it allow you to take a tax deduction for the gift, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your taxes. Connect with us to learn more about making a qualified charitable distribution today.
