Giving

To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything he has given us,
and he has given us everything.

   – Thomas Merton

How do we out-give our Lord?
He gave us his only Son who died for our sins!

Giving to your favorite parish or Catholic ministry is a beautiful gift, but it’s also an opportunity to show our gratitude to the Lord. Gifts of every size matter and the Foundation is here to help you decide how you want to give.

There are multiple giving options—many that benefit the donor as well as the recipient, including:
  • Charitable Gift Annuities—A Deferred Gift Annuity is an excellent way to make a gift to impact the Catholic Church in our diocese forever while also receiving the maximum Montana Endowment Tax Credit for which you are eligible.
  • Estate Gifts—Bequests made in your will for your favorite parish or Catholic ministry is a way to establish your legacy of faith for future generations.
  • IRA Rollover Gifts—A charitable IRA rollover allows people age 70½ and older to give their Required Minimum Distribution (or more) to benefit the Church and reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly from their IRA.
  • Gift of an Asset—You can transfer the gift of property to the Foundation and the sale proceeds will benefit the fund of your choice. An option that may benefit you in tax savings.
  • Online Monthly Giving—Make a single or recurring monthly gift using your credit or debit card on this website.
  • Trusts
  • Stock Gifts—You can share a beautiful gift and save on capital gains taxes when you donate a gift of appreciated stock to the Foundation.
  • Checks—A straight forward gift given by sending a check is always welcomed.

Please consult with your tax adviser/attorney before making any planned gifts. The Foundation is happy to provide you and/or your advisor with any information needed.

If you are unable to give financially at this time, we ask that you give through prayer, offering up thanksgiving for our priests, our deacons, our faith-lives that God has so graciously gifted to us, and pray, we ask of you, for the future of our Church.
