  • Matching Talk with your employer about their matching gift program. They may be able to help you double or even triple the amount of your contribution!
  • Real Estate Donating property to SMSP allows you to avoid tax on the appreciation in value and receive a current charitable deduction on your income taxes.
  • Bequests Remembering SMSP in your will through a charitable bequest reduces the amount of your estate that is subject to estate tax.
  • Charitable Trusts When you create a charitable remainder trust, you guarantee a gift to St. Mary Student Parish in the future. In return, you receive both an annual income from the assets you use to fund the trust and an immediate tax deduction. A charitable lead trust works the opposite way. SMSP receives an annual income stream from the trust assets for a period of time, and the remainder goes to your heirs.
