Two Tax-Efficient Ways to Help Cultivate this Faith-Filled Community

In 2024, the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon Foundation is committed to cultivating and sustaining the community care efforts of the Sisters and their sponsored ministries. This means fostering a faith-filled community of lifelong learners and compassionate leaders at Valley Catholic School and providing ‘Service with Love’ at Maryville.

Consider making a gift that will support the deep-rooted campus community in one of these two tax-efficient ways:

Donate stock: You can avoid the federal capital gains taxes and receive a federal income tax deduction for the current market value of the gift. Donating stock maximizes both your savings and the benefit you provide to the SSMO Foundation.

Give from your IRA: If you are 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, consider using the tool linked below to make a gift from your account. These gifts can reduce your future tax burden and help you fulfill a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Plus, your first IRA withdrawals this year go toward your RMD. Support the SSMO Foundation by making a tax-free IRA gift today to meet your 2024 giving goals.

If you have a donor-advised fund with any provider, consider making a distribution to the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon Foundation. Email [email protected] or call 503-718-6480 if you have questions about granting from a donor-advised fund.

By using this secure giving tool you help us maintain accurate records and dedicate more resources to serving others through faith and action.

Thank you for cultivating community support for the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and their sponsored ministries at Valley Catholic and Maryville.
