Blessings from our Donors
Donating from IRA
Recently a woman told me that since she was now 70 and ½ years old, she was required to take a minimum withdrawal from her IRA. The extra income from her IRA would have put her into the next higher tax bracket. She was happy to learn that she could support Mount St. Scholastica and help herself at the same time.
These donations are helpful to the donors and certainly to our community. We can use these funds to care for our elderly sisters or help support our ministries. Donors can designate their gift for a certain use or for general use to be determined by the community.
To donate from your IRA, contact your financial advisor.

From Jewelry to a Piano
On a couple of occasions, women have donated some pieces of jewelry to us. Sometimes we can use these pieces for Night of Dreams silent auction items. However, if they are of higher value, we sell them and use the money for our ministry needs.
Last year we were able to purchase a new piano for our Sophia Center. Part of the money to purchase it came from a generous gift of jewelry. The donor was very happy to put her jewelry to good use and to support our ministry in Sophia Center.
The piano we had was no longer working and could no longer be fixed. A piano is very important for the prayers and the programs provided in Sophia Center. Many groups that come to Sophia Center want to use a piano, and now they are very happy to have a beautiful sounding piano.
