Utilizing a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) offers a unique and tax-efficient method to support Minnehaha Academy. A QCD allows you to make direct transfers from your IRA to Minnehaha, with the funds withdrawn excluded from your taxable income. This giving method not only empowers you to support Minnehaha Academy but also optimizes your financial planning through tax advantages.
Please contact your financial advisor to see how you can enable this impactful giving opportunity.
Giving through your donor-advised fund is a powerful way to support our students, families, and the Minnehaha community. Equivalent to a charitable savings account, gifts to a Donor Advised Fund qualify for tax deduction without immediately having to choose the charities you want to support, or retain records of separate contributions once you do.
For more information on donation via DAFs, please call Sara Jacobson at 612-728-7764.
Minnehaha Academy accepts stock gifts. There are several ways to transfer your appreciated securities, but the most efficient is a direct transfer, via DTC, from your brokerage account to Minnehaha Academy’s account at Goldman Sachs & Co.
In a simple letter to your broker, indicate the type of securities you wish to transfer and instruct them to include your name when making the transfer. Please provide the following information:
It is helpful to let the Minnehaha Academy Development Office know the type of stock, number of shares or approximate value of the gift and the correct designation (Minnehaha Fund or special contribution, etc.) of your gift. If you plan to donate mutual fund shares or transfer stock certificates, please know these transactions require special handling.
To ensure your gift is credited in the current calendar year, please initiate your stock transfer with your broker at least ten (10) days prior to December 31.
Please make sure you notify Minnehaha Academy that you have initiated a stock transaction by contacting Sara Jacobson by email at email@example.com or phone at 612-728-7764.

For more information on reunion giving, please contact Nicole Sheldon, Alumni & Community Engagement Director, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 612-728-7796.
