DONATE

 “Our parish relies on the financial contributions of our members and friends. Thank you for your financial assistance to our faith community. Through your kindness, our Parish is able to witness to Jesus' Gospel message through our worship and ministry and to build up God's Kingdom in our region.”

Charitable Gift Annuity Program

The Charitable Gift Annuity program allows you to designate specific funds that will later be used for the Parish, while simultaneously providing a guaranteed income for life at a high rate of interest based upon your age.  A significant portion of the annual income you receive is tax-free. In addition, you can receive significant income tax deductions, and you may avoid a portion of capital gains tax if appreciated stock or securities are donated to fund the annuity.  For more information about charitable gift annuities, please contact the Diocesan Office of Development 724-837-0901 ext. 1123 or 1121.

Bequests

Please remember the Parish in your estate.  One of the interesting statistics regarding wills is that over half of all adults who die each year die without a will.  Another interesting statistic is that very few parishioners remember their local parish with a charitable bequest at the time of their death.  This could be a source of parish income for the future.  The potential is great.  A Bequest Intention Document is a simple one-page document that allows an individual or couple to make a revocable provision to the Parish through their estate, even if they have not yet made a will. Because the document is revocable, you can change or cancel this commitment at any time. It also enables an individual who has made a will with no provision in it for the Parish, to make such a provision without changing their will and incurring attorney's fees.  For more information about Bequest Intention Documents, please contact the Diocesan Office of Development 724-837-0901 ext. 1123 or 1121.

Life Insurance

There are two ways you can use your life insurance as a way of giving to the Parish. One is through the cash value on current or paid up life insurance, the other is to name the Parish as the beneficiary of your life insurance as a means of future giving.

Matching Gifts

If you are an employee or retiree of a company or corporation with a “matching gift program,” you can make a gift to the Parish and your gift will be matched thus doubling the impact of your gift.  If you are considering making a donation to the Parish please check with your employer to see if you can take advantage of their matching gift program.

Online Giving

If you are a member or visitor of the Parish, we welcome your contribution, offering or financial gift.  Our Parish offers an electronic online system for donors to contribute to our parish, using Paya Financial Services.  This service provides online giving -- either one-time or recurring -- and it is quick, convenient and secured using SSL encryption methods.  If you wish to make a one-time or recurring contribution or gift electronically, then click the button below.
