All money raised through individual parish GoFundMe pages will flow into a central archdiocesan fund, and the Parish Business Services team will aim to release all funds to parishes in the amount raised for the parish within the week
Pastors, parishioners, and the public can track how much each parish has raised in total on their individual parish GoFundMe pages
All money raised through the Parishes in Need fund will be distributed to conduct outreach to those in need and to those parish communities unable to meet their critical needs alone
Contributions are tax-deductible, and contributors will receive tax receipts automatically
Those who wish to support us through envelopes or cash/check contributions may continue your support by sending your envelopes/checks through the mail (404 Hudson Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030)
You may also hold donations for the Collection basket upon your return.
For added convenience, if you are making visits to the Church for private prayer, you may also place your regular envelopes and contributions in one of the Candle or Poor Boxes located throughout the Church.
Aiming to secure the sustainability of parish ministries and outreach programs, the Legacy Fund provides funding for parish speciﬁc endeavors such as outreach programs, maintaining our buildings and enhancing ministries.
The Legacy Fund is a restricted fund, meaning that 100% of the contributions received directly support the Church. Please consider letting others know of parish's importance to you at life's hallmarks, from a milestone birthday, anniversary or remembering a loved one.
Donations are made by check (please include a note designating the donation to the Legacy Fund) or by donating via FaithDirect at www.faithdirect.net, using the parish code and choosing to donate to the Legacy Fund.
Many employers offer employees the opportunity to make contributions to charitable organizations such as Ss Peter & Paul through:
1.Payroll withholding deposited into the employer controlled trust account(s)
2. Credit card donations deposited into the employer's controlled trust account(s)
3. Personal checks paid to the employer's controlled trust account(s)
4. Matching gifts
5. Paid work days to serve as a volunteer
By giving appreciated securities that you have owned for more than a year, your charitable deduction is the fair market value of the securities on the day of the gift. Such gifts provide income tax savings and eliminate your capital gains tax liability.
Wills and Estates
The parish can be remembered in your Will while still providing for your loved ones. Suggested wording for such bequests is: I give the sum of $—— (or —— % of my estate) to the Church of ——, for its general purposes (or something more specific of your choosing).
Consider naming Ss Peter and Paul Church as the beneficiary or owner of a new life insurance policy or the beneficiary of an existing policy. For a young adult, the premium for purchasing a new policy is minimal, yet the lasting benefits to the parish are significant.
Consider naming the Church as the beneficiary or contingent beneficiary on your Beneficiary Designation of your retirement plan, IRA or 401(k). It's easy, requires no attorney or fee, and is tax advantageous.
