Contribute to St. Anne

Online Giving Via Faith Direct

Through Faith Direct, you can make all of your offertory contributions to St. Anne Catholic Community via automatic payment from your checking account or credit card. This is a great way to simplify your giving – and it is cost-effective and environmentally-friendly way for us to receive your gifts. Click on the appropriate link above to get started. There is no fee involved.

For those of you who are not comfortable going online, you can still enroll in this program by completing an enrollment form.

Parishioners can elect to receive "offertory cards" in lieu of envelopes to be placed in the collection basket.

We can collectively "go green" by eliminating the many envelopes that go unused. In fact, every family signing up with Faith Direct means one less package of envelopes to print and mail out - and that equates to savings for St. Anne, which can be used to enhance the ministries in our community.

Faith Direct FAQ

Planned Giving

There are many ways to support St. Anne Parish besides writing a check. With a little planning, you can include a gift to St. Anne Catholic Community within your overall estate or financial plans that supports the mission of the church and provides you with tax benefits in return.

With a Will, There’s a Way

Momentous events like a milestone birthday, the arrival of a grandchild or retirement are a time to celebrate and reflect on where your family has been and what the future might hold. It’s also a chance to think about the values you hope to pass on to future generations.

One way you can ensure that your values endure is through will planning. Will planning is the highly personal process of deciding how your assets will be distributed after your lifetime.

Start at the Beginning

Create a will. Through this important document, you can direct the division of your property the way you choose. If St. Anne Catholic Community has been important in your life, you can also include a gift to support our future.

Already have a will? Don’t set it and forget it! Review it every couple of years to ensure that it has kept pace with your life. A new marriage, divorce, birth or death of a family member are events that should trigger a review to make sure that your will still protects the people you love.

Go a Step Further

If supporting St. Anne is a part of your future plans, share your intentions with loved ones. Does your family know why our work is important to you? Tell them! These conversations help ensure that your family understands your intentions. You could also inspire them to make a connection with St. Anne Parish.

Bequest of Property

St. Anne Parish receives specific assets, such as securities, real estate, or tangible personal property (for example, works of art or antiques). Donating stock to support the mission of St. Anne Parish offers even more tax benefits than writing a check. As stock price increases, so do the taxes you owe on the long-term capital gain, which are generally charged at a rate of 15 percent. But, when you donate your publicly traded stock you have owned for more than one year to a qualified charitable organization such as St. Anne, you enjoy two major tax benefits:

• You will be exempt from paying capital gains taxes on any increase in value (taxes you would pay if you had otherwise sold securities)

• You are entitled to a federal income tax deduction based on the current fair market value of the securities, regardless of their original cost.

Residuary Bequest

St. Anne Parish receives all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after the payment of any specific bequests and expenses.

Retirement Plan

St. Anne Parish is designated as a beneficiary of the remainder of your IRA or qualified pension or profit-sharing plan.
