SJV CAMPAIGN GIVING METHODS
· Cash or Check
Simply complete the pledge card and indicate the total pledge and payment preference. You will be sent reminders in accordance with your payment plan. Please make checks payable to the SJV Community Center.
· Credit Card or EFT’s
You can pay your pledge by having payments automatically paid with a credit card or withdrawn from either your checking or savings account. Please complete the Credit Card / EFT Authorization Form and submit this with your pledge card.
· Gifts of Stock
If you are interested in making a stock donation, please contact the campaign office before you liquidate your security so we can provide you with the transfer form and necessary information.
· Matching Gifts
Because there is an educational and outreach element to the community center, several bay area employers may match an employee’s or retiree’s charitable contribution. In some cases, this may even double your gift to the project! Please contact your employer for the appropriate matching gift information and guidelines. The campaign office can help you complete the matching gift form.
· Estate Planning
Gifts such as property, life insurance, estate bequests or charitable remainder trusts are welcome. Many of these giving options provide tax deductions along with income for the donor. Please contact the campaign office for more information.
· Materials & Labor
We are able to accept certain types of in-kind contributions of materials and other support, depending on the type of gift, project timeline and diocesan regulations. For a list of needs and eligibility, please contact the SJV Community Center office at 408.258.7832 ext. #36.
All contributions to the Our Community…Our Center Campaign are fully tax deductible for those who itemize their taxes. Because each situation is unique, we encourage you to discuss various gift options with your family and, if applicable, your financial advisors, to determine what type of gift is most beneficial to the Saint John Vianney Community Center and most appropriate for your situation. Please contact the campaign office for more information on any method of pledging.
The decision of how much you give to support this campaign is a very personal matter. We realize that everyone has different financial circumstances. Only you can determine what you can sacrifice in support of our projects. Your contribution, regardless of the amount, is welcomed and appreciated and is a testament to your faith and willingness to support the parish.
Please be aware that the names of contributors are periodically recognized, unless anonymity is requested. However, participants are never listed with corresponding gift amounts to preserve confidentiality and the spirit of a faith-based sacrificial campaign.
