Let your company double or triple your gift's impact! Many companies have a matching gift program: you give an amount and they donate the same. All you have to do is ask. 100% of both donations directly fund St. Ursula Villa students and programs.

Appreciated securities are an excellent vehicle to benefit the Villa. You may secure a charitable tax deduction based upon the full fair market value of the appreciated securities, avoid capital gains tax, and make a meaningful gift to the Villa that costs less to you than cash.

Tangible Personal Property
If you donate a tangible asset to St. Ursula Villa which has appreciated in value, such as a work of art, and if the asset is used by St. Ursula Villa in its educational program, you may receive a charitable tax deduction equal to the asset's full fair market value. However, if St. Ursula Villa does not use the asset, your charitable deduction may be limited to the asset's cost basis.
You may remember St. Ursula Villa in a variety of ways through a planned gift.
You may remember St. Ursula Villa in your estate plan. Bequests may be for a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or even a residual portion. With a gift through a will or living trust, you retain full use of your gift property during your lifetime. It is also possible to make a gift at death while reserving lifetime income for your spouse or other family member. Providing this type of benefit to St. Ursula Villa is simple by including the following language in your will or other bequest:
"I give to St. Ursula Villa of Cincinnati, Inc. the sum of $______ (or a description of the specific asset), for the benefit of St. Ursula Villa's endowment and in furtherance of its mission."
You may designate St. Ursula Villa as the beneficiary of your personal life insurance policy, or transfer ownership of an existing policy to the school. You may also buy and contribute to a new policy. This type of gift may entitle you to a tax deduction, and future premium payments may be tax-deductible.
If you are 70 1/2 years or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit St. Ursula Villa and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA (traditional or Roth) directly to a qualified charity such as the Villa without having to pay income taxes on the money. This strategy can work whether or not you itemize.
This law no longer has an expiration date so you are free to make annual gifts to our organization this year and well into the future.
Donors appreciate this option for a number of reasons:
- the gift counts against their required minimum distribution for the year
- the gift is excluded from taxable income - a nice tax benefit
- it may prevent the donor from being pushed into a higher tax bracket and help avoid the limit on charitable deductions
- it is easy to make: the donor simply notifies their IRA custodian
- it minimizes the effect on cash flow; the gift is from assets, not from the checkbook
