Make a Tax-Free Gift with an IRA


If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money. This law no longer has an expiration date, so you are free to make annual gifts to our organization this year and well into the future.
