"For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome, lacking clothing and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me. Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me". Matthew 25: 35-37, 45
Yes, I want to become a member of the
Matthew 25 Partnership with my donation.
Other Ways to Donate:
1. Matching Gifts:
Check with your employer to find out if a matching gift program is offered. A matching
gift leverages the donor's gift to a higher level.
2. Stock, real estate and other gifts:
For questions regarding this, our clients' needs and our volunteer opportunities,
please contact our office at 318-865-0200.
3. Donate your used car to a Catholic Community Services client:
Donate your car and we'll put it into the hands of a client desperately needing
transportation. Your gift could be tax deductible.
4. Donate In-Kind Gifts:
Contributions of personal and grooming items, office supplies and furniture, as
well as infant needs and dry
and canned goods for our food pantry are also needed.
5. Marketable Securities:
A gift of marketable securities, which are otherwise subject to long-term capital gains,
is often advantageous. Avoid payment of capital gain tax on the increase in the value
of the stock. Receive deduction for full fair market value of the stock at the time of the
gift, subject to limitations.
6. Life Income Trusts:
Place assets in a trust and retain the right to trust income. At the end of the trust,
the remainder goes to Catholic Charities. Tax deduction will depend upon the value
passed to Catholic Charities. The advantage of life income trusts is there is a flexibility
in the type of property that can be donated and it can provide a fixed amount of income
(Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust) or a variable level of income (Charitable Remainder
7. Charitable Lead Trusts:
Assets are placed in a trust, and Catholic Charities receives income for a period of time.
Assets are then returned to the donor or other beneficiary at the end of the designated
period. With a charitable lead trust, a donor can fulfill a gift pledge while reducing estate
and gift taxes that might otherwise be due on assets passing to heirs.
8. Life Insurance:
If you have a life insurance policy that your heirs don't need, make Catholic Charities
the beneficiary on the policy. The policy proceeds are deductible for your estate tax
purposes. You may also receive a current income tax deduction for the premiums
paid by making Catholic Charities the owner of the policy.
9. Bequest in a Will:
Outright bequests, as well as certain bequests in trust, are not subject to estate taxes.
Bequests can take any of the following forms:
- Bequest of a dollar amount, particular securities, or other property.
- Residual bequest of all or a portion of an estate after payment of specific amounts
to other beneficiaries.
- Contingent bequest to take effect if beneficiaries die before the testator.
