Tax-Free IRA Opportunity Made Available to Our Parishioners through December 31st

December 17th, 2014

On Tuesday, December 16th, Congress passed the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014, which allows owners of IRAs over the age of 70 ½ to make tax-free contributions up to $100,000 from their plans to qualified parishes, schools, and other Archdiocese of New Orleans ministries. This gift-giving opportunity provides an excellent opportunity to make a special gift to our parish, and, at the same time, lower your taxable income for the year. This opportunity is effective only through December 31, 2014.

Thank you for considering this opportunity! If you would like additional information on how to support our parish through an IRA contribution, please contact Josephine Everly (504-596-3031) or Robert Menard (504-596-3043) at the Catholic Foundation.
