Make A Difference - Support K∙yes
Our programming and operations are dependent on the generosity of our listeners and sponsors. K∙yes is the entity that allows you to receive Relevant Radio™ on your local radio dial, and also provides you with local programming. When you give to Relevant Radio™, you are supporting the national programming. When you give to K∙yes, you are supporting keeping that programming on your radio. K∙yes sometimes receives a portion of that Relevant Radio™ donation though not in all cases. Please consider supporting BOTH Relevant Radio™ AND K∙yes Catholic Radio in order to continue receiving this blend of local and national programming on your radio dial. To give to K∙yes Catholic Radio directly and help keep us on air, fill out the form below.
Cash or Cash Equivalent
A gift of cash is the simplest way to give. Cash gifts may be given as: (1) a one-time payment, (2) a pledge to be fulfilled at a later date or over a specified period of time (e.g. monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually) or (3) a recurring (continuous) gift given at regular intervals (e.g. monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually) without an end date. Payment options include check or other cash equivalent, including credit/debit card charges, ACH bank transfers and physical delivery of cash.
Other Giving Options
Direct Gifts from Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
The US Code, Sec. 408(d)(8), permits “qualifying charitable distributions” from traditional IRA or Roth IRA accounts to be excluded from gross income. This is great news for those who must take a “required minimum distribution” but who do not want to add to their taxable income for the year. If you own an IRA and are 70 ½ or older, you can make a tax-free transfer of up to $100,000 a year to K•yes.
Requirements and benefits:
- Donors must be at least 70½ years old on the date of the gift.
- The IRA Custodian (trustee) must transfer your gift directly to K•yes.
- Up to $100,000 per IRA owner may be contributed each year.
- Donors recognize no taxable income on the transfer.
- While the charitable distribution cannot be claimed an income tax deduction, it also is not used in calculating the percentage limitation on charitable contributions. For some donors, this may be the most significant tax benefit of making a charitable IRA distribution rather than a direct contribution to K•yes.
- The gift can count toward the IRA owner’s required minimum distribution.
- The gift must be made by December 31 to qualify for the current tax year.
