​Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite causes.

If you already benefit from donor-advised funds, please make checks payable to The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Los Angeles and designate the Priest Retirement Fund.  Add the parish name that you wish to credit with your donation in the notes or memo field.


Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, are popular gift assets as they may generate multiple tax benefits. Talk to your accountant or financial adviser about the benefits such a gift may provide for you.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD)

If you are over 70 ½ you may be able to make gift to the Priest Retirment Fund through a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). A QCD offers advantages to you over taking a taxable IRA distribution and then contributing the proceeds of that distribution to a charity.  By making a QCD directly from your IRA to the Priest Retirment Fund the amount of the QCD will not be included in your adjusted gross income.

A QCD permits annual direct transfers to a qualified charity totaling up to $100,000 of tax-deferred IRA savings. Importantly, QCDs count toward satisfying Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) for the year when the QCD is made.

If you intend to make a gift through a QCD please ensure the check is made payable or designated to the Priest Retirement Fund.  

If you are interested in making a gift through a QCD please contact our office or your Financial Advisor.
