As we count our blessings over the holiday season, generosity is in the air. As you ponder ways to help those less fortunate or support worthy organizations near and dear to you, consider establishing a charitable fund at The Catholic Foundation as a vehicle for giving. We’re a unique type of community foundation that allows you to do your current AND future giving, THROUGH US, to your favorite Catholic and non-Catholic charitable entities. If you are not sure to which organizations you wish to donate this year, yet need a tax deduction now, consider using The Catholic Foundation. You can give THROUGH the Foundation before December 31st, and recommend gifts from your fund, whenever it’s most convenient. The Catholic Foundation has the knowledge and experience to help you plan year-end gifts in ways to support the charities you love as well as minimize income tax.
