Vehicles and golf carts
Donated vehicles are used by monks and seminarians in their parish assignments and are not sold. Because the Abbey intends to make substantial use of the donated vehicles, you may qualify for a tax deduction. Golf carts help transport visitors and monks with special needs around the Hilltop. Special IRS rules apply to vehicle donations. Please consult your tax adviser.
If you are 70½ or older, an IRA qualified charitable distribution can help you lower taxes on your IRA withdrawals. This is fast becoming a popular option for many of our benefactors. All gifts in this form must be made payable to Mount Angel Abbey. We encourage you to discuss this option with your financial advisor.
