Stocks and Bonds

There are added advantages to giving stocks, bonds and securities.  You not only take credit for a charitable gift at its present value, but if held for more than a year, you are also exempt from paying tax on the profit realized from the original investment.  Talk with your financial advisor for more information on making these types of charitable donations.   

IRA Gifts

If you are over 70 ½ years old, you may also be eligible to make a charitable gift from your IRA assets of up to $100,000 per year with no tax complications.  These types of gifts must be transferred directly and count toward your minimum required distribution.  Again, it is always a good idea to speak with your financial advisor for more information. 

Tax Deductible Gifts

All gifts are tax deductible as provided by law.  Receipts will be provided upon request. 

Wills and Bequests

Providing for St. Thérèse, Little Flower in your will can have significant federal and estate tax Advantages.  For additional information, please contact the parish office at (574) 272-7070. 

Matching Gift

Many firms have matching gift programs to provide incentives for their employees to make charitable donations.  Many companies will especially match gifts given to capital campaigns that include a school or educational component such as we have.  Please ask your human resources or personnel department for a matching gift form.  The employee must initiate the process.  Both current and retired employees may be eligible.

Pledge Payments

You will receive reminder notices in accordance with the payment method you select.  Please make your checks payable to “St. Thérèse, Little Flower Catholic Church” and write “Capital Campaign” in the memo line.
