Maplewood Academy Capital Campaign

For Maplewood Academy to continue to fulfill its God-given mission to work towards the education and salvation of the young people entrusted to us, a new cafeteria building is vital. The need for these funds is urgent. For construction to begin this summer, the funds must be raised this spring for 70% of the building cost. Please prayerfully consider how you might be able to contribute to this exciting project that will support the entire Minnesota Conference, as Maplewood is the location for conference events such as camp meetings, music fest, and various Pathfinder events. Thank you in advance for your support for the young people of Minnesota and the surrounding areas.

Safeguard Your Medicare and Income-based Assistance Benefits by Using a Charitable IRA Rollover

The Social Security Administration is expected to announce its Cost-of-Living-Adjustment (COLA) this week for Social Security recipients, which could be the highest increase in decades. The increase is expected to be 8.7% to keep pace with year-over-year inflation. While many recipients may benefit from this increase, senior citizens who receive Medicare and other income-based assistance from state programs could face reduced or eliminated benefits due to the significant increase in taxable income. If you are receiving income-based assistance and are concerned that your benefits might be at stake, a Charitable IRA Rollover (also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution) could be a great way to reduce your taxable income to ensure that you continue to receive your benefits while also helping support the ministries you care about. If you’re 72 or older it also counts towards your RMD. To learn more, please contact the Gift Planning & Trust Services department today at 763-424-8923, or email msims@mnsda.com.
