For Your Consideration Continuing Metro Catholic's Mission

Many people decide to plan for a gift toward Education when they are creating or updating their will and estate plan.  Perhaps you, too, are looking for a way to express your gratitude to God for the blessings you have received.  Or, you have a desire to pass on to the next generation the values that have shaped your life.  Maybe you haven't been able to make sizeable gifts from your income during your lifetime, but you want to plan a larger gift from your assets at your death.

No matter your circumstances or stage of life, there is a way to make a meaningful gift that reflects what you hold dear.  If you are thinking about a gift to help Metro Catholic School, consider these options:

Bequest
A gift that can be made simply in your will.  You specify a set dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to be donated to charity.

Retirement Plans
You can name a charity, such as Metro Catholic School, as beneficiary of a retirement plan.  Also, If you are 70-1/2 or older, you may be able to reduce your taxable income and meet your Required Minimum Distribution with a gift made directly to a qualified charity, even if you don't itemize your deductions.  Talk to your IRA administrator for more information.

Life Insurance
You can designate Metro Catholic School as beneficiary of a life insurance policy that is no longer needed.

Donate Appreciated Stock
Gifting appreciated stock that you have held for more than one year may allow you to deduct the stock's full value and bypass capital gains tax.

It is surprisingly easy to plan for a legacy gift.  We recommend that you work with your financial advisor to determine which gift type is most appropriate for you, or call the Metro Catholic School Advancement Office at 216.634.2854.
