Charitable IRA Rollover

A charitable IRA rollover is a gift option that enables donors age 70½ or older to transfer up

to $100,000 directly from the donor’s IRA (or IRAs) to a qualified charity each year. The donor

does not recognize the transfer as taxable income on his or her tax return. By the same token, this

transfer may not be claimed as a charitable income tax deduction.



When you make a gift to Molloy through a charitable IRA rollover, you can:
  • Count the amount of your rollover toward your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
  • Avoid additional taxable income, which may allow you to avoid taxation at a higher tax bracket.
  • Create or add to a permanent endowment in your name or in memory of a loved one. (For this consideration we ask you to contact Craig Katinas at 718-934-3151 or to discuss and plan.)
  • The charitable IRA rollover is available only for gifts from a traditional IRA and not from any other type of retirement plan (401(k), 403(b), 457, Keogh, ESOP, etc.).
  • The rollover is allowed only for outright gifts to a qualified public charity like Archbishop Molloy High School for which the donor receives no benefits.
  • The donor must be at least 70 years of age on the date of the gift.
  • The donor can give up to $100,000 each year from his or her IRA(s). A couple with separate IRAs can donate up to $100,000 each from their respective IRAs.
  • There is no federal income realized and no income tax deduction for the donor (unless made from documented after-tax contributions to the IRA).
  • The gift should be transferred from the IRA directly to the charity. The donor should not accept any distribution of funds intended for a charitable IRA rollover.
  • Some states treat the charitable IRA rollover like a withdrawal for state tax purposes, but this varies from state to state.
  • Please check with your financial advisor to determine how a charitable IRA rollover gift will impact you.

A Proud History of Support


As we celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the founding of St. Ann's Academy and Archbishop Molloy High School, we ask you to please help us to continue providing excellent quality education for every Stanner. Archbishop Molloy High School needs your financial support. We believe in our mission, and we believe in your generosity.

Our annual fund, The Fund For Molloy, supplements Molloy’s current operating budget. It is a non-restricted fund.

Annual Means Everyday

Regardless of its size, your gift to Fund for Molloy enables Molloy to:

  • Remain affordable and accessible
  • Provide state-of-the-art technology
  • Improve classroom and student facilities
  • Ensure the intellectual, spiritual and physical growth of our student


How Much Should I Give?

The size of your gift is a personal decision, but we encourage you to participate to the best of your ability. We ask you to join our Beehive Club and consider a gift or a pledge of $500 or more, which will entitle you to an invitation to the annual President's Dinner. Giving club levels have been established to recognize alumni, parents and friends who exhibit leadership through their contributions to the school. The generosity of our giving club members plays a vital role in the future of Archbishop Molloy High School. We invite you to seriously consider membership in one of our giving clubs.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Your gift could be doubled if you or your spouse's employer have a Matching Gift Program. Please obtain the necessary forms from your employer.


Gifts of $100,000 or more to the Endowment Fund can be identified with the name of the donor or as memorials to others such as family members, friends, faculty members or other individuals a donor wishes to recognize. Endowment programs which perpetuate the name of a family or individual are popular memorial or tribute gifts. The Endowment Fund handles record-keeping details of each gift and reports to the donor.

Support In A Class By Itself

Planning a class reunion? A class-size donation to our annual fund is an ideal expression of the reunion spirit--the past and present of Stanners coming together.

How Can I Make A Gift?

Immediate Gift

  • Gifts by check should be made payable to Archbishop Molloy High School.
  • Credit card gifts help Molloy benefit almost immediately. You may donate to Molloy using your American Express, MasterCard or Visa on this website.

Pledged Gift

You may pledge a gift and arrange convenient payment installments.

Life Insurance and Retirement Plans

If you own a life insurance policy that is no longer needed, consider it as the perfect vehicle for a charitable gift! To receive a charitable deduction, name Archbishop Molloy High Schoolas both the owner and the beneficiary of the policy. If the policy has a cash value, you can take a charitable deduction approximately equal to the cash value at the time of the gift. In addition, if annual premiums are still to be made and you continue to pay them, those premiums will become tax deductible each year.(It’s easy to contribute a life insurance policy to us. Just check with your life insurance agent for details on which forms to complete.) 

Gifts of Stock, Bonds, Collections, Antiques or other Personal Property

Giving appreciated securities is a tax-wise way of benefiting the school as well as the donor.

Example: If you purchased stock many years ago for $1,000, and is now worth $10,000, an outright gift of that stock to Archbishop Molloy High School would result in a charitable deduction of $10,000. In addition, you permanently avoid paying capital gains tax on the $9,000 of appreciation. Here’s how it can be accomplished:

To transfer stock electronically, please give your stockbroker or custodian the following information:

  • Merrill Lynch
  • Robert Metzger
  • 1305 Walt Whitman Road
  • Melville, NY 11747
  • Email:
  • Phone: (631) 351-5076
  • DTC #8862
  • Account #839-04016

Please ask your financial advisor/broker or custodian to provide the donor’s name at the time of the transfer. 

If you have a certificate you wish to give to Archbishop Molloy High School, you can either give it to your financial advisor/broker who can follow the electronic transfer instruction previously covered in this message or simply sign the back and mail it to: 

  • Archbishop Molloy High School
  • Stanner Alumni Center
  • 83-53 Manton Street
  • Briarwood, NY 11435


To ensure that the gift is credited properly, please contact our Alumni Development Director, Craig Katinas '93, at the Stanner Alumni Center at 718.943.3151 or to let us know that the transfer is in process. Please give the donor’s name, the broker’s name, the name of the securities, and number of shares.

Trusts and Wills

All or part of what remains after loved ones have been provided for can be put in trust or directed for the use of Archbishop Molloy through the Endowment Fund. Assets can be put aside also for a limited period of time and then returned to the donor.
