Guidelines for a Monsignor Lafferty Tuition Foundation Donation:

All gifts to MLTF are subject to compliance with the Diocesan Gift Policy.
The designation of any gift shall be limited to the definition of an eligible student by the Code of Iowa and the criteria established by the Board of Directors of the Monsignor Lafferty Tuition Foundation.
90% of each designated gift is allocated to the selected Diocesan Catholic School and 10% allocated to the unrestricted fund.
If a school has met its designated goal, donations may be redirected to a school that has not met its designated goal.
Donations designated “Where Needed Most” may also be redirected to a school that has not yet met its designation goal.
When multiple locations are designated by the donor, the gift will be allocated proportionally among the locations that have not yet met their designated goal.
If designated funds are not used for the designated school because of the lack of eligible students, those funds will be allocated to the unrestricted fund to be awarded throughout the Diocese of Sioux City where the need is greatest.
The Department of Revenue advises that funds received from a donor-advised fund (DAF) do not qualify for the STO tax credit and therefore are not able to be accepted as a gift to MLTF in the Diocese of Sioux City.
