Employer Matching Funds:
Do you work for a company that will match your charitable giving funds? Your giving dollars go further with this option. Many area employers offer charitable matches.
Donor Advised Funds:
There are many investment programs that allow you to make donations to charitable organizations at the same time you invest for your future. The benefits of these plans include an additional source of lifetime income for you and your family, potential increase in investment earnings, an immediate tax deduction for a portion of your gift, and no capital gains tax due at the transfer of appreciated assets. These funds are offered through Fidelity, Vanguard, Schwab and other investment companies.
Donation of Securities:
Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual funds are a great way to make donations and may offer a greater tax advantage than other methods of giving. In general, a donor receives an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of securities owned more than one year, subject to the usual limitations, and avoiding capital gains tax.
IRA Charitable Rollover:
This option, available in years when approved by law, allows donation of funds to charitable organizations as part of your required IRA distribution without incurring taxes on the donated amount. Funds must be transferred directly to the parish to qualify.
Gifts from your will or trust or from your retirement plan can be given by designating St. Francis of Assisi as a beneficiary.
