The simplest and most common form of a planned gift is a bequest made through a donor’s will. Making a gift through a bequest provides the donor the advantage of having gift and estate taxes reduced or avoided. Distributions can be made either as a specific dollar amount or as a percentage of the estate.
Employee Matching Gifts
Many companies will match the contributions their employees make to tax-exempt institutions. This match can double the amount of your gift. Cathedral School of Saint Mary will offer gift recognition for the amount of your gift plus the match and the name of the company. To get started ask your employer for your company’s matching gift form and include it along with your gift.
Cathedral School of Saint Mary welcomes donations and services that in turn will benefit our schools. The donor, through an appraisal, record of purchase, or billing statement determines the gift value. Gifts should follow the gift acceptance guidelines.
Designating Cathedral School of Saint Mary as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy benefits the students while providing substantial tax benefits to you, the donor. The premiums are tax-deductible if the school is selected as both the owner and the beneficiary.
Gifts may be pledged to memorialize and honor a member of your family or loved one. Gifts may be pledged in memory of an individual and / or sponsorship of a scholarship or program. All gifts will be recognized and the family or person informed that a gift was received.
Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are excellent ways to give particularly if they have appreciated in value. Transferring gifts to the school can bring the donor tax savings by providing a deduction for the full fair market value of the stock when the gift is made. (Stocks generally must have been held for more than eighteen months.) Another advantage with the donation of a security is the exemption of capital gains taxes afforded you.
To make a donation or in-kind gift, please contact the school office at 476-1480 ext. 303 or by emailing the Advancement & Admissions Director, Esmeralda L. Hoang, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All gifts made to Cathedral School of Saint Mary are tax deductible as allowed by law.
