Ways to Give

There are many ways to give to Moore Catholic High School, all which have a positive tax impact on the donor.  While every donor should seek professional tax advice as to the extent of the positive tax treatment they would reap as a result of making a gift to Moore Catholic, the tax code is clearly supportive to both donors and charitable institutions.

The following are general giving categories by which you can make a gift to Moore Catholic High School.  If you need more information or are interested in discussing a gift to Moore please contact:

Cash or Check:

Mail to the Office of Finance at Moore Catholic High School, 100 Merrill Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10314.  You may bring cash donations to our finance office. Donations may be given over a one or multi-year period.  The Finance office will help you with a plan that suits your needs.

Matching Gifts

Many companies match contributions made by an employee or their spouse. The donor is acknowledged for the original gift plus the amount of the match. Please check with your human resources department to determine if your company participates in a matching gifts program then obtain the proper forms to send to our Finance Office.

IRA Distribution

Recently signed legislation, Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act, permanently extends the IRA Charitable Rollover Provision. The provision allows individuals who have reached age 70½ to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income.

Planned Giving

Moore Catholic recognizes those who support our vision for the future by including the school in their estate plans. We welcome individuals who  make gifts through bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, real-estate, or retirement assets.

Securities

By transferring appreciated stock, bonds, or property, a donor may receive a substantial tax savings. By making an appreciated security gift to the school, a donor may avoid capital gains tax possibly resulting in a complete tax deduction for the gift’s full market value.
