If you are thinking about your final charitable gifts for the year, consider how a gift through the Catholic Foundation can help the people who need it most.You can support the mission of the Church by helping parishes, schools and nonprofit organizations build resources for their ministries, and fund the good works that bring life to the Gospel teachings.

Ways to give:

Giving Cash

With a gift of cash, you will receive a charitable deduction that could provide you with savings on this year’s taxes. Donate Now.

Required Minimum Distribution

Making a gift from your retirement plan, such as a 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax deferred plan, may result in little or no tax on these distributions. If you are over age 70 1/2 you can make tax-free charitable gifts of up to $100,000 directly from a qualifying IRA. Learn more.

Giving Appreciated Stock

These gifts are generally deductible at their fair market value and can be used to offset income tax. Plus, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets. Learn more.

Support a Granting Endowment

If there is a parish, school, or organization that already has an endowment, you can support them by donating to that fund today. You can also support one of our granting funds which makes annual grants to organizations with impactful work in areas such as Catholic education, social outreach, vibrant parish life, and Latino ministries.
