6. Tribute and Memorial

You can make a donation in honor or in memory of a family member, friend, an individual, or in recognition of a special occasion. Memorial gifts express what words alone cannot and provide important support for CCUSA. We have a couple options available for Tribute/Memorial Gifts:

  • Contact CCUSA’s Development Department at donations@catholiccharitiesusa.org to set-up a gift program memorializing the loss of a loved one.
  • If you would like CCUSA to send a hard copy mailed tribute, please print and mail our tribute form with your donation to: Catholic Charities USA P.O Box 17066 Baltimore, MD 21297-1066

Please note: CCUSA is unable to mail hard-copy tributes for donations made online. Where possible, electronic tributes/memorials are the most efficient and environmentally friendly way to make a donation in honor of an individual or occasion.

7. Gifts through Wills and Trusts

Thank you for considering naming Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) as a beneficiary of your will or trust. A gift through your estate ensures that your commitment to ending poverty will continue beyond your lifetime, having a lasting impact on CCUSA’s work to serve those in need.

We suggest using the following language:

"I give, devise and bequeath to Catholic Charities USA, a charitable organization located at 2050 Ballenger Avenue, Suite 400, Alexandria Virginia 22314, [state percentage of estate or residue, sum of money or otherwise describe property] to be used for its general [or the following specific] purposes."

Catholic Charities USA prefers that bequests be made for its unrestricted general purposes in its work to reduce poverty in America. To learn more, please contact Brian Gavin, 703.236.6259, or email donations@catholiccharitiesusa.org

 
8. Gifts of Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds

Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, especially those with long-term capital gain, are popular gift assets because they may generate multiple tax benefits.  These benefits include a charitable income tax deduction of the stock, bond, or mutual fund’s market value on the date the asset is received by CCUSA and no capital gains tax on the appreciation.  Talk to your accountant or financial adviser about the benefits such a gift may provide for you.

Most stocks are transferred electronically.  Share the following information with your stock broker or financial adviser to ensure your gift is transferred to CCUSA, or have your broker contact us if there is a question.

Depreciated Stock: Have your stocks, bonds, or mutual funds declined in value?  If so, you may find there is an advantage to selling the stock, bond or mutual fund, recognizing a loss, and then contributing the cash proceeds of the sale to Catholic Charities.  Talk to your accountant or financial adviser about the best option for you.
