gift types  

CURRENT GIFTS AND PLEDGES

Gifts can be cash contributions that provide immediate impact.  Examples of current gifts are cash and securities.


GIFTS OF CASH

Gifts of cash are immediate transfer of funds from you to Catholic Central High School and can be made by credit card or check.


GIFTS OF SECURITIES

For more information, please contact Beth Banta, Director of Advancement, at 616-233-5816 or bethbanta@grcatholiccentral.org.

A gift of securities can be a good option for accumulated stock that has appreciated in value and would be subject to a 20% capital gains tax if sold. These gifts are unique in that the donor can take a federal tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the stock, regardless of how much the donor paid for the stock.  No capital gains taxes apply.


PLANNED GIFTS

A number of planned gift opportunities exist for donors exploring and executing charitable intentions to Catholic Central High School.  Some of these include gifts of life insurance, bequests, remainder trusts and other annuities.  Many unique and beneficial tax advantages can be gained through these gifts.

For more information or to make a planned gift, please contact Beth Banta, Director of Advancement, at 616-233-5816 or bethbanta@grcatholiccentral.org.

 

Thank you for your prayerful consideration of your gift to Catholic Central High School and The Greatest Gift campaign.
