You may make commitments to the Embracing Our Mission – Shaping Our Future Capital Campaign in the form of cash, pledges, securities, and planned gifts. Pledges may be filled over a five year period, in whatever increments are most appropriate for you.
Cash: You may make an outright gift by cash or check. Cash gifts are tax deductible, as provided by law.
Pledges: You may make a pledge to the Embracing Our Mission – Shaping Our Future Capital Campaign through 2016 (up to 60 months). Pledges allow you to contribute a larger gift than would be possible to make in any one tax year.
Securities: Securities can provide an attractive means of giving. Through this type of gift, one can receive the charitable income tax deduction and avoid paying a tax on “capital gains” that would otherwise be due if the stocks were sold. In some cases, you may even be able to carry a tax “loss” for a multi-year period.
Matching Gifts: Many employers will offer to match your gift or pledge and you will receive the credit for the contribution. Please contact your Human Resources Department to see if Saint Louis or the Archdiocese of Baltimore qualifies as a designated charity.
Saint Louis Planned Giving Legacy League: The Legacy League is for parishioners who would like to leave an estate or “planned” gift as a legacy to Saint Louis. The most common form of a planned gift is a bequest, though there are other options that may be attractive to you from a tax perspective.
