Memorial or Tribute Gift

When you give a memorial or tribute gift for the Dominican Friars Foundation to honor someone special, you’re expressing your love, admiration, and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute, and serve as a testament to your most cherished values.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities
You can use stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to support our shared vision. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
Matching Gift Opportunities

Would you like to maximize the impact of your giving and encourage other supporters to mobilize on behalf of the Dominican Friars? Consider sponsoring a matching gift challenge. Donate a matching grant to the Dominican Friars Foundation, from which we will match any donation made within a given period of time. In this way, you can double the impact of your giving.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to the Dominican Friars Foundation. This is an effective way to have an immediate impact and ensure our work of preaching Jesus Christ and His Saving Gospel continues. Here’s how it works:

  • You must be 70 ½ or older.
  • An individual may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $200,000.
  • Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to the Dominican Friars Foundation.
  • Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to the Dominican Friars Foundation so it does not create taxable income for you and is not considered a charitable tax deduction.
  • If you are 72 and older, the transfer of funds counts towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA.
