Ways to Give 

Leave a Lasting Gift through Your Estate

Continue your legacy planning with a lasting gift to Notre Dame ACE Academies schools that will impact lives for years to come. Including Notre Dame ACE Academies in your planned giving continues your ability to serve the schools’ mission of providing a quality, Christ-centered education and helping our children realize college and heaven.

The Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) has helped set up more than 450 endowment funds to help others with their legacy planning. To learn more about how you can plan a lasting gift through legacy planning, contact Joanna S. Feltz, J.D., at or 317-236-1482 or .

Consider the Charitable IRA Rollover

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can give up to $100,000 tax-free directly from your IRA. A husband and wife can each give up to $100,000. As of 2015, this provision became permanent. Your rollover gift must be made directly to the Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) from your IRA but can be designated to benefit Notre Dame ACE Academies schools.

For more information on how you can take advantage of this tax savings benefit and impact the educational future of Notre Dame ACE Academies students, contact Joanna S. Feltz, J.D., at 317-236-1482 or .

Take Advantage of the Indiana Tax Credit Scholarship Program

More than 1,000 families have been able to send their child(ren) to Notre Dame ACE Academies through the generous gifts we have received through the Tax Credit Scholarship Program. In 2016, $9.5 million in tax credits were exhausted in Indiana on December 12. We anticipate these funds to run out even earlier this year. Plan now to make your gift in July and take advantage of the 50% tax credit. It’s easy to do!

Donations must be directed to the Institute for Quality Education (IQE) in order to receive the tax credit. Donations may be made via cash, check, credit/debit cards, the charitable IRA rollover or publicly traded securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds).
