Have you ever found yourself wondering what is the best way to make an impact at Mount Carmel? There are many ways to get involved, and the support from our alumni, parents, and friends is critical to the success of Mount Carmel. Whether helping ensure tuition remains affordable, contributing to the annual operations of the school or making an impact by helping transform campus, there are many ways to keep Mount Carmel vibrant.

In addition to many areas that need funding, there are many ways an individual donor can make a gift that will best serve them and the school. Recently, we launched a new web portal to help decide which option is best for each individual. By visiting http://mchs.planmygift.org you can explore many different types of gifts that involve making an immediate impact or support that will be realized later. The goal is to make the best decision possible based on your wishes for Mount Carmel and your financial position now and in the future. We encourage all of our alumni, parents, and friends to utilize this new tool to help clarify your options.

One option that has now become permanent is the IRA rollover provision, which allows a donor aged 70 and a half to make a gift directly from his or hers IRA to a charity of their choice tax-free. The gift can be up to $100,000! 

To learn more about planning your philanthropic interests and making an impact at Mount Carmel, contact Michael Holland, Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement, at mholland@mchs.org or 773-324-1020, ext. 285. You can also view some of the new helpful resources in the articles below.
