Welcome to the McBride Alumni Website
 

In 1921, funds to build a Catholic High School in St. Louis, Missouri were given to the Archdiocese by Mrs. McBride as a memorial to her husband, William Cullen McBride, an outstanding Catholic layman. In the words of the late Cardinal Glennon, Mr. McBride was “a man who saw and understood the questions of his day, and even foresaw those of the future. He realized the need for educating the hearts and minds of youth so as to fit them for facing the problems of life.”

Under the guidance of the Brothers of Mary, McBride opened in 1925. During its 47 years, McBride rose to become a landmark and a milestone in education. Situated on the northwest corner of Kingshighway and Cote Brilliante Avenue, this limestone educational institution yearly molded and shaped the lives of six hundred young men. Graduates passed through her famous colonnades each year well prepared to meet their moral and civic responsibilities in an adult world. For a variety of reasons, the school closed in 1971.

In 1985, as part of their 50th reunion, the class of 1935 decided to rekindle the fire by establishing a McBride Alumni Club. Our rosters now include 418 teachers and 7,385 former “McBride Micks”.

On March 10, 2009, the New McBride Alumni site was launched.  Please let everyone know about this site, and keep the spirit of McBride alive.

McBride Legacy Scholarship Phase II  UPDATE
November 2021

In this season of giving thanks and counting our blessings, we are thankful for your generous support of the McBride Legacy Scholarship Fund. Our Phase II fundraising results made it possible to award $1,000 (a $200 increase) to each of the McBride Scholars (total of 60) in the 2021-22 school year.

Once again, we extend our gratitude to Joe Nettemeyer for his generous match opportunity to continue to spark alumni interest in carrying forward a Marianist education for today’s Chaminade students who are McBride legacies. These young men are the bright minds of the next generation who will lead and sacrifice to build a better future.

Class Rankings

Of the 508 Micks who have made a gift to our Phase II efforts, 143 contributed to both the Phase I and Phase II efforts, and 363 have joined the efforts in Phase II. Participation has been strong across all the classes.

The top ten classes are:

1967 with 48 donors      1963 with 31 donors

1970 with 42 donors      1965 with 30 donors

1968 with 37 donors      1962 with 27 donors

1969 with 33 donors       1961 with 18 donors

1964 with 32 donors       1966 with 18 donors

Need Your Support 

We are $36,000 short of maximizing Joe’s matching gift opportunity. Maybe now is the right time for you to make a gift and take advantage of the matching opportunity as well as a making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA. A QCD would exclude the amount you donate from taxable income and can be counted toward satisfying your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the year, as long as certain rules are met. Also, QCDs don't require that you itemize, which due to the recent tax law changes, means you may decide to take advantage of the higher standard deduction, but still use a QCD for charitable giving.

Gifts can be made online via credit card at https://www.chaminade-stl.org/alumni/mcbride-alumni/mcbridescholarship or mail your gift to Chaminade College Preparatory School, Attn: McBride Legacy Scholarships, 425 S. Lindbergh Blvd, Saint Louis, MO 63131-2729

May God bless your life with love and joy this holiday season and all through the year.

If you have any questions, please contact any of us on the committee or Julie Lohr, Chaminade’s Director of Development at (314) 692-6652, or email her directly at jlohr@chaminade-stl.org.

We send our heartfelt thanks and best wishes.

Maybe a Qualified Charitable Distribution is Right for You

Required Minimum Distributions, often referred to as RMDs, are amounts that U.S. tax law requires one to withdraw annually from traditional IRAs and employer-sponsored retirement plans.

The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (SECURE Act) became law on December 20, 2019. The Secure Act made major changes to the RMD rules. If you reached the age of 70½ in 2019 the prior rule applies, and you must take your first RMD by April 1, 2020. If you reach age 70 ½ in 2020 or later you must take your first RMD by April 1 of the year after you reach 72.

RMD rules apply to tax-deferred retirement accounts: • Traditional IRAs • Rollover IRAs • SIMPLE IRAs • SEP IRAs • Most small-business accounts • Most 401(k) and 403(b) plans

If you’d like to reduce the effect of RMDs on your taxes, consider making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity. A QCD would ex- clude the amount you donate from taxable income and can be counted toward satisfying your RMD for the year, as long as certain rules are met. Also, QCDs don’t require that you itemize, which due to the recent tax law changes, means you may decide to take advantage of the higher standard deduction, but still use a QCD for charitable giving.

The maximum annual amount that can qualify for a QCD is $100,000. This ap- plies to the sum of QCDs made to one or more charities in a calendar year. (If, however, you file taxes jointly, your spouse can also make a QCD from her own IRA within the same tax year for up to $100,000.)

A tax advisor can help you determine when to take RMDs and if a QCD is appropriate for your situation.
