Company Matching Gifts

Many companies today are seeking ways to minimize their tax burden and are therefore eager to make donations to charitable organizations. Often, if your company is given a copy of your donation amount, they will supply a matching gift to your charity. In some cases, employees will also receive credit for their employers’ contributions. Please speak with your company’s human resources department for details. St. Pius X School accepts all matching gift forms from companies who match employee donations. Please provide the company matching gift form with your contribution.

Here are long-term giving options to the St. Pius X/ St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Education Endowment Fund:

Outright Gift of Cash or Appreciated Securities:

These gifts assure maximum benefit to St. Pius X School and minimum immediate income tax deduction for you based on current fair market value.

Charitable Bequest in a Will or Trust:

These gifts enable you to retain total control of your assets during your lifetime. Deferred gifts in wills or trusts should incorporate our full legal title and our federal identification number. A stated bequest in your will can benefit our Catholic School and be a fitting memory and lasting tribute to you or a loved one.

Gift of Life Insurance:

You may convert existing or new policies into a charitable gift. Cash value in current or paid up life insurance policies can benefit Catholic education. Naming St. Pius X School as beneficiary of life insurance proceeds can be a means of making a future major gift. You may even designate a percentage of gift.

Check with your employer’s personnel or benefits office to see if your gift will qualify for a matching gift from your company.
