METHODS OF GIVING
The most common gifts received in a campaign are gifts fulfilled by cash or check. This allows St. James the Apostle to address its immediate needs.
Appreciated charitable gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual funds offer special tax advantages and can be a great way to provide a significant gift to St. James the Apostle.
Gifts of property entitle a donor to an income tax deduction equal to the full market value with no tax on any capital gains.
Donate an old policy by simply naming St. James the Apostle as the owner and beneficiary. Or consider donating a new policy.
AUTOMATIC WITHDRAWAL/CREDIT CARD
Your payments can be made automatically from your checking/ savings account or placed on a credit card. If you would like to give in this manner, please ensure you provide your contact information on the pledge card so the St. James the Apostle parish office can contact you to make the necessary arrangements.
Planned giving is the process of carefully selecting the best method and assets for making a charitable gift. Such a gift can enable a donor take full advantage of the tax laws to accomplish their financial and charitable goals. A bequest contained in a will is the most common form of planned giving.
CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS
A matching gift program provided through an employer or board membership may allow the donor to increase the value of their gift. Many companies match charitable gifts of employees, retirees or board members.
