• 35 EF LogoSee Your Gift to the St. Odilia Parish or School Endowment Multiply!

    As Catholics, we’re called to give. When we give generously, we are reminded how generous God has been to us. Now, through the Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota (CCF), the St. Odilia community has a unique opportunity to multiply our gifts. In honor of the 35th Anniversary of St. Odilia’s Endowment Funds, CCF is offering a $1,000 matching grant to the St. Odilia endowment of your choice when you establish a donor advised fund at CCF. With 10 grants available, we could raise $10,000 for our endowments. The donor advised fund must be opened by December 31, 2022.

    What Is a Donor Advised Fund?

    A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable account held at a 501(c)(3) organization. You make tax-deductible gifts into your fund, which are invested tax free. Then you make grants out of your fund to the causes you support, like St. Odilia, on your own timeline. Think of it as a charitable checking account.

    Flexibility

    DAFs offer you flexibility. You can gift a variety of assets — such as cash, appreciated stock, real estate, and personal property — to your fund and receive immediate tax benefits. And many families leverage their DAFs to create a family legacy of generosity.

    Faith Alignment

    Everything that CCF does, it does with a Catholic heart. CCF invests the assets of its donors and partners following the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Socially Responsible Investment Guidelines. And CCF screens all its grant recipients to ensure their activities are not in conflict with Catholic teaching.


    A New & Easy Way to Support the St. Odilia Endowment Funds

    The Catholic Community of St. Odilia is pleased to partner with the Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) to offer individual donor-advised funds - a convenient and tax-efficient way for you to create a lasting legacy in support of our shared mission of discipleship.
