Legacy Planning: IRA Gifts for our Parish

Posted on July 30, 2022 by Published by

We Love because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)

Every day, we have the opportunity to be the face of Jesus to others. Please consider making a gift from your individual retirement plan (IRA) that benefits you and our parish.

A QCD gift (IRA charitable rollover) allows individuals age 70½ or older to authorize their IRA administrator to make a direct transfer of funds from their IRA to qualified charities, tax-free. This way of giving does not generate taxable income, which may lower your annual income level. If you are age 72 or older, the amount you transfer may count towards your required minimum distribution.

If you would like more information on how to make a QCD gift to Our Lady of the Wayside, please contact Ewelina Sokolowski, Operations Director, at 224.518.1774 or by email at

Thank you for your consideration!
