Giving Options

St. John Paul II established the Law of the Gift: “Man can fully discover his true self only in sincere giving of himself. For he who loves, desires to give himself.’’

St. Paul Partners share their Time, Talent or Treasure to grow the faith and save souls.

Giving options include:

  1. Partner Giving. Setting up a predetermined regular monthly or annual gift that can be deducted from your bank account or credit card. Maximize your giving via the EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) method or giving through your bank credit or debit card.
  2. Airline Miles. Airline miles can be donated to defray the costs of ministry services to your and other communities. Call our development office for details.
  3. Planned Gifts. Including St. Paul Evangelization Institute in your will. All sized gifts are welcome.
  4. Life Insurance. A life insurance policy can often be leveraged to leave a much larger gift. Sometimes a payoff can be quadruple the investment.
  5. Donating Rosaries, equipment, supplies and/or property such as real estate, stock, cars or other assets. Just nine percent of U.S. wealth is in cash and donating property can avoid tax implications while benefiting an important mission involving faith, education or preserving our culture.
  6. IRA Charitable Rollovers or Profit Sharing Accounts
  7. Setting up a Charitable Remainder Trust providing your family a regular annuity of income while leaving the remaining balance to our cause. Charitable Lead Trusts, the reverse of a Charitable Remainder Trust, allow you to shelter your stocks, business or other assets now, shelter them from taxation and use the proceeds to generate  benefits for a charity while leaving the remainder to an heir or for your own retirement.
  8. Pooled Income Funds. Suppose a  class or a family or friends or a parish wanted to go in on something together, sharing the burden of setting up a fund. Like a lottery club, members can each donate to a Pooled Income Fund to invest their money.
  9. Personal or Family Foundations. Working with other Catholic organizations, we can help you set up an investment vehicle to maximize your earnings and do good annually.

Sharing Love. “Evangelization isn’t about a concept or an idea, but about a friendship with Christ that you have, and that you want someone else to have too,” – Bishop Robert Barron.

Conversion. “The New Evangelization is about ongoing conversion,” Scott Hahn.
