Parish Giving

Parish Contribution Envelopes are sent to families registered in the parish.  All contributions are recorded and a statement of giving is sent home each January.

An pdfACH authorization form may be completed for automatic withdrawals from your bank account to make regular contributions on a weekly or monthly basis.  (This is coordinated with our parish bank, Town & Country Bank.)  Parish Contribution Envelopes are sent to these families on a bi-monthly basis, with envelopes for only Holy Days and special collections.

Contributions can be made at any time from your bank account with our online payment link.  These contributions can be a one-time donation or can be set up to be recurring.

Special Parish Envelopes

Teacher Salary Fund
A contribution envelope is included each month in your parish envelope package.  Donations to this fund are dispersed each year as a yearly bonus to our teachers and staff.

Building on Tradition Fund
Our school addition, completed in the fall of 2011, cost a total of $5,400,000.00.  A monthly envelope is included in the parish envelope package to collect pledges and to receive contributions from those who were not able to make a pledge.

Diocesan Collections

Parish envelope packets include special collections for ministries throughout the Diocese and the world.

Donations to these organizations are recorded by the parish.  The parish sends a check to the Diocese for the total collected.

Bequests

A will is the easiest and most effective means to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.   Many people have remembered Blessed Sacrament in their will while still providing for their families and loved ones.  These bequests provide a major portion of the church’s funding for major projects and repairs. 

Life Insurance

Blessed Sacrament may be named as the beneficiary, or partial beneficiary, of your insurance policy.

Securities

Making a gift of appreciated stock is one of the most advantageous forms of giving with an opportunity to avoid taxation of capital gains.

Real Estate

Gifts of appreciated real estate are similar to gifts of appreciated stock. If you have owned the real estate for 12 months or more, you will avoid capital gains taxes and may deduct the fair market value of the real estate.

Matching Gifts

Some employers offer matching gifts to non-profits.
