Finance Council

The Finance Committee works closely with the pastor and the parish accountant in the oversight and planning of the financial status of the parish.

IC Endowment Fund

Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) have been permanently extended, which gives you another reason to consider a contribution to the Immaculate Conception Endowment Fund. Individuals can donate up to $100,000 per year directly from a traditional IRA to qualifying charities like the endowment fund. This is attractive to some investors because QCDs can be used to satisfy required minimum distributions (RMDs) from an IRA without having the distribution included in their income.

When the IRA holder reaches the age of 70 ½, a QCD may be made directly from their IRA to a qualified charity. Making a QCD provides an opportunity to make a charitable contribution that you might otherwise not have been able to make and/or receive potential tax benefits for charitable contributions that you are already making. Since itemization may no longer be as beneficial as it once was, this is a way to bypass taxes on your charitable contributions. You should consult your tax advisor and estate-planning attorney about your situation. Contribution details you will need: Immaculate Conception Endowment Fund, c/o Marty Miller, 1206 E. McCarty St., Jefferson City, MO, 65101.

A gift to the endowment fund is a lasting gift to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. These gifts help strengthen the financial reserves of the parish, and are carefully invested and managed. The Fund makes a distribution to the parish annually to help meet the ongoing needs of the parish and school. Questions?
