Charitable Giving

Make a Gift through an IRA Charitable Rollover

Normally, a distribution from your IRA is taxed as ordinary income. However, tax legislation enacted in December 2010 extends the opportunity through December 31, 2011 for individuals 70 or older to make a direct distribution from your IRA to a qualified charity, such as Good Shepherd, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis or a ministry area of your choosing. Qualified direct distributions to charity from your IRA are not subject to income tax.

For more information about how you and the Church can benefit from an IRA charitable rollover, please contact Ellen Brunner, director of planned giving, Catholic Community Foundation, Inc., at 317-236-1427 or e-mail at
