Your generosity enables us to serve and sustain the community care efforts of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon.
The next few months are crucial to providing vital resources for the Sisters and those who are served by their sponsored ministries at Maryville and Valley Catholic School. Your contribution, no matter the size, can transform our efforts to enrich lives and inspire minds.
Many of our supporters have found that giving stock, grants from donor-advised funds, or making a qualified charitable distribution can be more “tax-savvy” than giving cash. We encourage you to consider these options as you plan your year-end giving.
Here are a few tax-savvy ways to give:
- Transfer appreciated assets: Save on two types of taxes and get a full deduction for the value of your gift. Our stock tool tracks your donation so we can thank you for your gift.
- Give directly from an IRA: Donors 70 ½ or older can reduce their taxable income, and if you need to meet a Required Minimum Distribution, IRA gifts can count towards those as well.

Thank you for your support and belief in the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon’s mission. Together we can continue to provide service with love at Maryville, foster a faith-filled community of lifelong learners at Valley Catholic School, and serve others through the Sisters outreach and ministry.
