Church Endowment Fund
A St. Catharine Parish Endowment Fund was established many years ago at The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Columbus. The Fund provides perpetual funding for the needs of our parish.
Create Your Own Named Endowment
Parishioners can create their own named endowment during their lifetime to provide St. Catharine Parish with a permanent source of income expressly for the benefit of any number of Parish ministries. All endowment funds are established at The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Columbus, whose staff will work with you and our Pastor to establish an endowment agreement and awards criteria.
For example, the typical “annual payout” of an endowment is equal to 5% of the fund’s principal balance, i.e., a $25,000 fund balance would provide an annual cash award of $1,250.00 to St. Catharine Church.
For a sample Endowment Description that benefits St. Catharine Church, please contact Development Director Doug Stein: email@example.com
Stock and Other Appreciated Securities
A gift of appreciated stock (typically held for longer than one year) is an ideal and tax-wise method of supporting St. Catharine Church. As an added benefit to the donor, gifts of appreciated stock avoid any capital gains on the increased value of the appreciated property, and donors receive a full deduction for the full market value at the time of the gift and capital gains tax is not due when the stock is transferred to the Parish. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes.
It is best to consult with a financial advisor to ease this kind of gift and to ensure proper credit is extended to you, the donor.
Please contact our Development Office at (614) 231-4509 ext. 317 or download our Stock Transfer Instructions below.
Making a Gift With Your IRA
Parishioners and friends of St. Catharine who are age 70 ½ or older are permitted by law to transfer up to $100,000 from a traditional or Roth IRA to a qualified charity, which includes our church and school! Donors may transfer 100% or a portion of their Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) to St. Catharine Church or School. By electing to gift your RMD to St. Catharine, you as the donor avoid claiming the required distribution on your annual taxes and will benefit even if you do not itemize. Transfers must be made directly from an IRA custodian to St. Catharine so please consult with your financial-advisory team for assistance.
If you would like to support us through your IRA, please contact our Parish Development Office at 614-231-4509 ext. 317 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
