Our Progress

Our Parish Family is 650 members. As of September 12th we have received 183 Family pledges, representing 28% of our parish families.

$882,745.00 Campaign total raised to date.

Have you pledged yet? Its not too late.

Please prayerfully consider and pledge what you can. We need your help! There are many ways to do so. (some questions raised about pledges are answered below)

What is a matching gift program and can St. Catherine of Siena get money from these programs?

Through matching gift programs companies support employee charitable giving. Companies match gifts made by employees to a wide variety of non-profit organizations, but there are often restrictions and many businesses will not match gifts made to churches. To see if St. Catherine of Siena is eligible, please talk to your company's human resources office about guidelines.

Can we make our gift through stocks?

Appreciated securities offer donors an income tax deduction for a charitable gift and donors avoid capital gains tax that will be incurred through a sale. Please consult your tax accountant for advice. Call the parish office for information on how to transfer the stocks to the parish brokerage account.
