The Foundation offers several ways to make a gift in support of its mission and priority needs for both interpretation and preservation — each responsive to a donor’s particular circumstances and each with distinct tax advantages.

Outright Gift: Donors may choose to make an outright gift of either cash or securities as the most direct way to give.  A gift of appreciated securities, whether publicly traded or from a private company, may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash.  The donor can deduct the current fair market value as a charitable gift, avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation.

Multi-Year Pledge: Donors may choose to pledge to the Cathedral Foundation. Pledges can be fulfilled over a period of one to five years.

Corporate Matching Gift: Donors can increase support to the campaign through corporate matching gifts programs. You (and/or your spouse) are encouraged to contact your employer/former employer to inquire about a matching gifts program. 

Planned Gift: There are a variety of planned giving options enabling donors to fulfill their commitment or even consider a larger gift level for the Cathedral. Options promoted include: gifts of stock, real or other personal property, life insurance, annuities, lead and remainder trusts and simple bequests. 

Memorial or Tribute Gifts: Any gift may be designated in memory or in honor of a friend or loved one.  The family of the deceased, or person honored, will be notified of your tribute.  The amount of the gift is not mentioned.
