There are a number of ways to benefit St. Joseph Catholic School and ensure it's future for decades to come.
Gift in your WIll or Living Trust
You want to leave money to St. Joseph Catholic School in your will. You also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances change. You can do both. In as little as one sentence, you can complete your gift. This type of donation to SJCS in your will or living trust helps ensure that we continue our mission for years to come.
"I give to St Joseph Catholic School, a nonprofit corporation currently located at 1501 VFW Rd. Greenville, MS 38701 or its successor thereto, ______________* [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."
Donor Advised Fund
A donor-advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to St. Joseph Catholic School. You transfer cash or other assets to a tax-exempt sponsoring organization - Catholic Foundation in Jackson MS. You can then recommend but not direct how much and how often money is granted. In addition, you avoid the cost and complexities of managing a private foundation. In return, you qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction at the time you contribute to the account. This also allows for a centralized giving and record-keeping system in one location.
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by St. Joseph Catholic School, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
An endowment gift to St. Joseph Catholic School today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits. Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at SJCS. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support. Contact Rebecca Harris at The Catholic Foundation to contribute to our endowment fund or start one of your own with as little as $2,000
