  • Gifts of Stock

    By donating appreciated securities or mutual fund shares, you can provide a lasting gift while receiving benefits, such as capital gains tax savings.
  • Individual Retirement Accounts

    Good news for taxpayers over the age of 70.5. Congress has voted to make permanent the exclusion from income of up to $100,000 per person, per year, for Individual Retirement Account (IRA) distributions which are given directly to charities like Rockhurst High School.
    The distribution counts towards your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Friends of Rockhurst High School should consult with their tax advisor about this giving option.
  • Real Estate

    You can enjoy a charitable deduction based on the current fair market value of your property to reduce the size of an estate.

Freeman ’82 at 816-363-2039 (ext. 571) or lfreeman@rockhursths.edu if you have remembered Rockhurst High School in your estate plan or would like more information.
