Volunteers Needed (Time, Talent & Treasure)
Can You Help Us?
We are always in need of office supplies, materials for handouts and funds to help our organization meet
the cost of printing and mailing of our newsletters, parish resource manuals and
brochures. Monetary support is also sought to help defray the cost of our website upgrades and other multimedia needs. Most of all we are also seeking financial assistance to help newly forming chapels within the Archdiocese. Unfortunately,
all this costs money; and since we are not subsidized by the Archdiocese we
depend on all God’s people to help us through their donations. So please share
the blessings in your life by contributing to the Saint John Paul II
Eucharistic Adoration Association of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Those who
do will be remembered in our prayers and monthly Mass intentions celebrated by
our Episcopal Moderator, Bishop Joseph N. Perry.
If you can help with us some
assistance, please call us at:
708-728-0840 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.

Alternate Forms of Charitable Giving
Appreciated stocks, bonds and
other securities may be gifted directly to the Association. Your tax deduction is the same as if you had
given cash and is based on the market value of the security given. By giving the security, you avoid capital
gains tax on the transfer to the Association.
It is one of the best tax incentives left.
Gifts of land, vacation homes and income-producing properties can bring great benefits to the Association. We have to review each proposed gift
carefully as sometimes it is not practical for us to accept.
The balance remaining in a
retirement account after the owner’s death may be subject to double taxation if
it passes to your heirs by being taxed both as income to the heirs and as an
estate asset. The result is that over
75% of the account value may go to pay taxes. A better plan may be to designate the Association as the beneficiary
of the account and to gift other assets to your family.
You may be holding a collection
or artwork that you no longer wish to maintain.
Such assets may bring great benefit to the Association. We have to review
each proposed gift carefully as sometimes it is not practical for us to accept.
If you have no heirs or have an
estate that may no longer need the proceeds of a life insurance policy, you could
designate the Association as the owner of the policy. Such a gift may produce valuable income and
estate tax savings.
Please remember the Association
in your will. Bequests can produce
estate tax savings.
All gifts large and small make a
difference in the work of the Association.
If you have any questions or need assistance in implementing an
alternate form of gifting, please email us at email@example.com.
