Want to decrease your tax liability this year?

Consider making a qualified charitable contribution (QCD) from your taxable IRA to Southfield School. As long as your age is 70 ½ at the time, you can easily make a gift. You can choose to give only to Southfield, or you can give to other charities, too, if the total distribution does not exceed $100,000 over the course of a calendar year. You can contribute $100,000 per person; for married couples, each spouse can make QCDs up to the $100,000 limit for a potential total of $200,000.

A distribution to Southfield School from an individual retirement account does not incur federal income tax and can be counted as an individual’s Required Minimum Distribution. Funds must be transferred directly from your IRA to Southfield School. If you don’t need the income from your retirement account, a distribution is a simple way to reduce your tax liability.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Mack Guilbert won the National Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program Contest for Louisiana!

Last fall, our third graders received cabbage plants in Science Lab from Bonnie Plants and were asked to take them home to plant and nurture them for 10-12 weeks. At the end of the growing time, they took a picture of themselves with their cabbage plant and submitted it to Ms. Cockerell. The third-grade class then chose a winning cabbage based on size and appearance and it was submitted into the contest. More than 1 million third graders in the 48 contiguous states have gotten hands-on gardening experience, growing colossal cabbages with high hopes to win “best in state” and receive a $1,000 scholarship towards education from Bonnie Plants.

Southfield's own Mack Guilbert’s cabbage plant won the Louisiana contest and he will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. We are so proud of last year’s third graders for their gardening work and congratulations to Mack on his winning cabbage! A presentation at Southfield to present Mack his award is being planned and details will be announced later.
