Now Sacrificial Giving is Easier Than Ever

Your generosity makes a difference!


Online giving helps St. Katharine Drexel and St. Maximilian Kolbe Parishes save time and money.  Recurring donations help us plan and give us financial predictability.

Sacrificial Giving     4 options

                                          #1:  Bill Pay is the Preferred Method of giving for the

                                                    parishes.  Electronic contributions and donations come

                                                    right out of  your checking or savings account.  This

                                                    method is convenient and there is no cost to the

                                                    parishes. Your bank's bill payment service allows you to

                                                    set up single or recurring payments directly from your

                                                    account to your own parish.

A Statement from the Business Office regarding the Security of Txt2Give OnLine Giving:
Our parish is using “Txt2Give” to manage text gifts for donations.  Txt2Give’s team has extensive experience developing software that handles electronic payments. Bank-level encryption is used when transmitting credit card data to a secure processor, and sensitive credit card information never enters Txt2Give. It's transmitted directly from the mobile device to the payment processor. Txt2Give is the same platform used by the Diocese of Rochester for CMA gifts. The Diocese vetted this platform with its legal counsel and auditors for security, PCI compliance*, and compatibility with its payment processor before implementing and endorsing it for use in the parishes.
If you have questions regarding Text2Give, please contact our Finance Director, Mary Capone at 585-281-7440.
*PCI compliance standards require merchants and other businesses to handle credit card information in a secure manner that helps reduce the likelihood that cardholders would have sensitive financial account information stolen.

It's tax time - Have you considered a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)?

When planning your IRA withdrawal strategy, you may want to consider making charitable donations through a QCD.

A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian payable to a qualified charity.  QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, as long as certain rules are met.

In addition to the benefits of giving to charity, a QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income, unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA.  Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare.  Also, due to recent tax law changes, QCDs don't require that you itemize which means you may decide to take advantage of the higher standard deduction but still use a QCD for charitable giving.

If you have questions, please contact our Finance Director Mary Capone at
