How to Give
The Care & Share Annual Catholic Appeal offers several giving options to express your commitment to our Catholic Church in this diocese. Please select one (or more) that are most convenient for your personal giving style and situation.
REMEMBER: Your gift to Care & Share qualifies for a charitable tax deduction on your Federal and Montana tax returns, if you itemize.
CASH – CHECK - EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer - EFT)
A gift given in the form of cash, check or automatically from your checking or savings account on a monthly basis is the most common method of making a contribution.
For ease of giving, you may make your secure credit or debit card donation at: www.CatholicFoundationMT.org.
Click on “To Give” and select the tab “Care & Share 2016”. You may give a one-time donation or set up recurring gifts. If you prefer, we can enter your credit or debit card donation online for you.
Please contact Judy at 800-332-9998 ext. 120 for donations made by the following three gift options:
Donate a gift of stock, bonds or mutual fund shares that have appreciated in value. These gifts will have an immediate impact on our appeal and also create an income tax deduction for you based on their current value. Because there is no capital gains tax when you make a charitable gift, you receive an additional tax benefit above and beyond the charitable gift.
LIVESTOCK & GRAIN
We often give thanks to God for a bountiful harvest. Giving directly from the harvest or sale yard has become very popular with many farmers and ranchers because of tax benefits and ease of donating an asset, rather than cash.
MINERAL INTERESTS & ROYALTIES
God has blessed many in our diocese with increased oil and gas activity. Gifts of mineral interest, whether full or partial, will help the Catholic Church in our diocese carry out is mission for generations of Catholics to come.
