For mail-in donations

The envelope postmark date is a very important piece of information!
* If the check is dated December 2022, and the envelope is postmarked December 31, 2022, but it is not received until January 3, 2023, the contribution will be recorded for 2022.
* If a check dated in December 2022, but postmarked January 2, 2023, the donation will be recorded in 2023.
Your IRA & Charitable Giving
If you are required to take a minimum distribution from your IRA in 2022 or are over age 70 1/2, you can avoid the income tax through a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). The QCD giving option allows charitable contributions to be made directly from an IRA to a qualified charity such as Sacred Heart Parish (or other qualified charities). This can be a beneficial strategy in your charitable giving. Consult your IRA administrator or financial advisor on the proper procedures for making a direct distribution to Sacred Heart Parish.
