ONLINE GIVING – To set up online giving, using either a credit card or as a debit to your bank account, please visit the online giving portal for your parish:
ONLINE BILL PAY – You may choose to have your account debited by your bank, and not utilize our third-party vendor. Please contact your bank directly to set up automatic bill pay to either St. Paul Parish or to St. John the Evangelist Parish.
CASH or CHECK – Cash and checks may be placed in the collections at any Mass (offertory envelopes and checks will be directed to the appropriate parish – to direct a cash donation to your home parish, please place it in an envelope with the intended parish noted on the outside.) You may also mail your contribution to the parish office, or drop it through the mail slot at either the St. John Parish Center or the St. Paul Office.
SECURITIES – Gifts of securities are processed by the Archdiocese of Boston (RCAB). Upon receiving donated securities, RCAB contacts its broker to sell the donated shares at current market value, and remits the proceeds to the appropriate parish. Directions for making either a physical or electronic gift of securities is found at bostoncatholic.org/stock-or-mutual-fund-donations. By making a gift of appreciated securities, you can avoid paying the capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold the assets yourself.
DONOR ADVISED FUNDS – Please direct your fund administrator to make the check out to either “St. John the Evangelist Parish” (tax id #04-2109875) or to “St. Paul Parish” (tax id #04-2106358).
MATCHING GIFTS – Some employers provide matching gifts that can double or even triple the value of a gift. You should inquire of your Human Resources department as to whether they will match gifts to religious organizations. If your company will match gifts to a parish, email the matching gift form to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to Jackie Welham at 39 Washington St., Wellesley, MA 02481.
Please note that St. Paul Parish and St. John the Evangelist Parish do not provide tax advice. You should contact your personal tax advisor to determine which form of gift is best for your particular circumstances.
