• How to Contribute

    The Endowment Fund can accept gifts in several forms:

    Cash or Stock: Contribute any amount, any time! Checks should be made payable to “St. Odilia Endowment Fund.” Gifts of stock are converted to cash and the value is added to our Fund.

    Bequest in Your Will or Estate Plan: A simple, easy way to remember St. Odilia is in your Will or estate plan. You may designate a specific dollar amount or percentage of the remainder of your estate as a gift to the Endowment Fund. You should contact your attorney for creating any legal document such as your Will or Trust Agreement, including changes to existing documents. In addition, you may contact an Endowment Fund Committee member for discussions about your intended gift and suggested language. (CLICK HERE to download the suggested language document)

    Life Insurance or IRA Beneficiary Designations: You may name the St. Odilia Endowment Fund as a full or partial beneficiary. You can remember your parish community with a gift that does not tap into your current cash assets.
    There are several ways to contribute money directly to the Endowment Fund:

    • Checks or cash given to the church, designated to the Endowment Fund (and category).
    • Include it in the Green envelope given annually to parishioners.
    • Electronically via the St. Odilia Website (Click Here To Access Online Giving).
