Giving

Please support our programs for young people, especially those who need it most. Your donation supports the daily programs and facilities directly related to our mission, while setting a marvelous example to those we serve.

Cash Gifts

A cash gift may take the form of a one-time donation, or you may elect to spread your gift out over an extended period of time (see Pledge Gifts below). If you itemize deductions on your federal tax return, you may be able to deduct the amount of a cash donation from your adjustable gross income. Please consult your tax advisor for deduction requirements and limitations relating to your specific situation.

Making your gift over an extended payment period may enable you to make a more substantial contribution and tailor your specific giving plan to your needs. Generally, gifts may be spread out up to a five year payment period. Cash payments pursuant to such pledges may be deductible from your adjustable gross income in the year in which they are made. Please consult your tax advisor for deduction requirements and limitations relating to your specific situation.

Securities

A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities — i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. Donating long-term appreciated securities directly to our organization rather than selling the assets and then donating the cash proceeds — is one of the best and easiest ways for you to give more. By taking advantage of the applicable tax incentives, you can significantly increase the amount of funds available for your donation.

Please contact our development office for more information.

Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA)

An annuity is a contract between an investor and an insurance company (or other designated fiduciary) that allows the investor to pay a premium in order to achieve tax-deferred earnings or to gain a consistent stream of income over a lifetime. In this type of gift, you can use an existing annuity or start with a lump-sum contribution. The deferred annuity or lump sum is used to fund an immediate annuity that funds you with a lifetime income while Mary Help receives the lump sum immediately.

Please contact our development office for more information.

Remembering Mary Help in Your Will and Other Planned Giving

Please consider leaving Mary Help of Christians Center in your will, trust or other forms of planned giving.

For more information, please contact the development office. 

Matching Gifts

Many corporations and businesses will match the charitable contributions made by their employees to a non-profit organization. Check with your employer to see if they offer a matching gift program. If they do, request a matching gift form from them, and send it completed and signed with your gift to the “Donate by Mail” address above.

Prayer

We are deeply grateful to all those who support Mary Help of Christian’s and specifically our fundraising efforts with the spiritual gift of their prayers.

Thank you for your interest in our mission and your desire to assist us. May God reward your generosity!
