How Can I Help?
There are many ways to show your appreciation by supporting the retired Claretian Missionaries living at Dominguez Seminary:
Make a pledge payable with installments over several years.
(A pledge normally sets equal gift installments over a five-year period, but pledges can be made for a shorter period. A first payment usually accompanies the pledge.)
Make a one-time gift by check.
(The check should be made to “Claretian Missionaries” with a notation of “Centenary Campaign.” It should be mailed to Dominguez Seminary, address below.)
Make a gift with appreciated assets.
(Stocks, bonds and real estate, held long-term, can be given with the donor receiving a deduction and avoiding the payment of capital gains taxes on the gift.)
Make a gift from your retirement fund.
(Donors 70.5 years and older can give up to $100,000 a year from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA). The Qualified Charitable Distribution will count towards the individual’s Required Minimum Distribution for the year, lowering one’s tax bracket.)
Remember the Claretians with a Bequest.
(A dollar amount or a percentage of the estate, whether you have a will or a trust, can be designated to benefit the retired Claretians upon your death.)
On all methods of giving, please consult your tax advisor to determine your best options.
