Hello, my name is Reverend Larry Snyder, President of IS member, Catholic Charities USA and I’ve just returned from a trip to McAllen, Texas, where I saw first-hand the developing humanitarian crisis on our southern border. Thousands of children and teenagers are fleeing homelands beset by violence, gangs, and inescapable poverty seeking the promise that America holds.

A few years ago I arrived a little late for the IS picnic lunch following our half day of volunteering with local community projects. As I swung my car into the baking asphalt lot, I was grateful to join my colleagues in the park where they had nabbed a shady spot nestled amid the verdant greenery of D.C.’s Rock Creek Park. Around the tables sat IS colleagues who had filled their plates and settled in to chat before the afternoon activities staff council had organized.
The facts speak for themselves – good things happen when secure retirement and charitable impulses meet. That is, when a pragmatic tax incentive like the IRA charitable rollover prompts retirees 70 1/2 years and older to share a chunk (up to $100,000) of their surplus wealth with the charitable cause of importance to them.
A funny thing happened on the way to the Capitol Hilton.
