  • Including charitable gifts in your will and financial plans can benefit Saint Joseph’s today and in the future. Often, there are personal financial benefits for you such as increasing your income, earning valuable income tax deductions and minimizing capital gains taxes. Visit our planned giving site or call Dave Crawford at 610-660-1968 to learn more about planned gifts, including gifts by will, life-income gift plans and other creative giving options.

  • Gifts of securities often confer significant tax benefits on a donor. For example, contributions of appreciated securities held over a year are generally deductible at market value without realizing taxable capital gains, regardless of what the donor paid for them.
