A Gift through Your Will - Making a bequest in your will is a great way to leave a gift when your current situation leaves you on a tight budget and unable to make gifts during your lifetime.
A Gift Annuity - When you make a contribution towards a gift annuity, you will receive income for life, a charitable income tax deduction, in addition to making a gift to the Capuchins.
A Gift of Life Insurance - When you name the Capuchins as the beneficiary of your life insurance (or as a co-beneficiary), you can make a wonderful gift by making modest insurance premium payments during your lifetime.
Honor or Tribute Gifts - You may make a donation to the Capuchins on special occasions like birthdays, first Holy communions, confirmations, anniversaries or holidays. Just include a note with your gift explaining the situation and who you would like us to send a note card to for you. Or if you prefer, use this form.
A Gift of Stocks - We gratefully accept gifts of stock. If you so wish, please inform your broker that you will make a stock gift to The Province of St. Joseph of the Capuchin Order. Your broker will send the stock gift to:
Attention: Mark Maddock
465 Main Street
Belleville, MI 48111
Account Name: The Province of St. Joseph
Please notify our Development Database Manager (313.579.2100, ext. 208) of your gift so we may provide you with the appropriate tax deductible information. Thank you for considering a gift of stock.
Memorials/Honorariums – Often when someone passes away we want to remember them with a gift that will help others. Your gift to our ministry will help … . If you share the family’s contact information then we will send a note mentioning you by name but not the amount. Some people at the end of their life choose to designate a charity to receive memorial gifts. Again we can process any gifts made at the funeral or afterwards and then send the surviving family members a list of all gifts received. Of course the friars remember all those who have passed away and their family and friends in their prayers.
Foundation Grants/Corporate Matching Gifts – Our ministry is a 501 (C) 3 charity and eligible to receive foundation grants. If you have a donor designated fund at a community foundation, you can make a gift to us through the foundation. Also if your company has a foundation or charitable matching gift program, our 501 (C) 3 status normally means we qualify. To make a gift through a foundation or corporation, contact their staff or our Development Office. Our Federal Tax ID or FEIN is: 38-1525161 and our legal name is Province of St. Joseph of the Capuchin Order. Our address is 1820 Mount Elliott Street, Detroit, MI 48207
