Your gift supports the work of our organization to provide care and support care partners of individuals living with dementia.
Reoccurring Gift (Monthly or Annual):
Pledges help us plan for funding throughout the year and provide an automatic way for you to support our work. Reoccurring gifts of any kind will be processed monthly or annually.
Stock Gifts (includes Charitable IRA Gifts):
Did you know your publicly traded securities are eligible for donation? When you choose to do so, both you and MCHS benefit – we receive the total value of the stock, and you may avoid paying capital gains tax. If you have questions, contact the Advancement office at 314-645-6247.
Charitable IRA Gifts:
In December 2015, Congress passed and the President signed into permanent law charitable IRA distributions per the following guidelines (Qualified Charitable Distributions-QCD):
- You must be 70½ or older to be eligible to make a QCD.
- The maximum annual amount that can qualify for a QCD is $100,000. This applies to the sum of QCDs made to one or more charities in a calendar year. (If, however, you file taxes jointly, your spouse can also make a QCD from his or her own IRA within the same tax year for up to $100,000.)
- For a QCD to count towards your current year’s Required Minimum Distribution, the funds must come out of your IRA by your distribution deadline, generally December 31.
To make a QCD gift from your individual IRA, please inform your IRA custodian that you intend to make a Qualified Charitable Distribution directly to:
Memory Care Home Solutions
The check should be made payable to “Memory Care Home Solutions” and be sent DIRECTLY from your IRA custodian to us at the following address: ATTN: Advancement Department Memory Care Home Solutions, 4389 West Pine Blvd., Saint Louis, MO 63108.
