One-Time or Recurring Donation

By setting up a recurring gift to St. Paul’s, you can spread your support throughout the year and provide St. Paul’s with a reliable source of funding. You can stop or suspend your donation whenever you wish, and will receive a reminder before your gift is charged.

Even a single donation can help St. Paul’s continue to grow and meet the needs of our senior community as we have since 1960. Ask us about donating your appreciated assets to receive a charitable deduction and avoid paying capital gains taxes as well!

Memorial & Tribute Gifts

Memorial gifts allow you the opportunity to remember a loved one and can be made “In memory of” them to commemorate their life.

Tribute gifts allow you the opportunity to recognize someone special in your life and can be made “In honor of” them to recognize a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, or thank a staff member for the care of your loved one.

At your request, St. Paul’s will send a personalized card to the individual you designated to be notified of your gift, without stating the amount given. In addition, your name and the name of the person you recognized will be published in our tri-annual Community Connection newsletter.

Estate Planning & Legacy Giving

Your estate plan represents your beliefs, compassion, and legacy. Planned charitable gifts allow donors the satisfaction of leaving a philanthropic legacy to a charitable organization such as St. Paul’s. As you explore the personal and financial benefits of leaving a legacy gift, taking into consideration your personal and family circumstances, consider giving to St. Paul’s through one of the following:

Bequest

Making a bequest in your will or trust is a simple way to leave a lasting legacy for St. Paul's and the seniors we serve. It's easy and flexible. You can choose what you want to bequeath from your estate – a set amount of cash or a percentage. Your gift can be subject to specific events or conditions and may be eligible for an estate tax charitable deduction.

  • If you would like to learn more about why naming St. Paul’s as a beneficiary in your estate may be right for you, please contact Liam Dunfey, Director of Major Gifts & Planned Giving at (619) 239-6900.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A CGA is available to people 65+ years of age and involves signing a contract whereby you transfer cash to St. Paul’s in exchange for a partial tax deduction and a lifetime stream of annual income from the charity. A typical Certificate of Deposit (CD) is paying near 1% interest and a savings account is paying even less. For someone 70 years old, a charitable annuity offers a return of over 5%, and the rates just get higher for those who are older.

  • If you would like to learn more about why a Charitable Gift Annuity may be right for you, please contact Liam Dunfey, Director of Major Gifts & Planned Giving at (619) 239-6900.

Life Insurance Policy

A gift of life insurance is an often overlooked, yet beneficial, method of making a meaningful contribution to St. Paul’s Senior Services. If you are carrying more insurance coverage than your family now requires, you may find a hidden surplus gift asset in a paid-up policy. You can also create a future gift at a lower cost by taking out a new policy on your life and naming St. Paul’s as the owner and beneficiary.

  • If you would like to learn more about why naming St. Paul’s as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy may be right for you and your family, please contact Liam Dunfey, Director of Major Gifts & Planned Giving, at (619) 239-6900.

We’d be happy to help walk you through the options and talk about best practices for planning your estate.
