Giving

As people of faith, we are called to give of ourselves and our resources to assist others and support the work of the church. There are many opportunities to do that in our diocese. In addition to giving of your Time and Talent you can give of your resources.

There are many ways families and individuals can support the needs of parishes, schools or ministries in the Diocese of the West. Donors have the opportunity to contribute to an existing endowment fund or with a minimum of R100,000 establish a donor designated endowment fund or donor advised fund to support Diocesan entities that matter most to you.

If you choose to give now, you can transfer cash or other assets to the Diocese and receive an immediate tax advantage. Financial assets that can be used now include:

  • Cash
  • Appreciated securities
  • Closely held stock
  • Life insurance
  • Mutual funds
  • Retirement assets
  • Real property
  • Tangible personal property
