Corporate Matching Gifts

Your gift may be able to be doubled or tripled if your company offers a corporate matching program.  Many workplaces will match their employees’ charitable contributions. Some matching gifts programs also include gifts by spouses or retirees.  If you or your spouse work for a matching gift company, please request a matching gift form (from your Human Resources office) and enclose it with your gift.  It’s a great way to double or triple the value of your gift to Holy Angels.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of stocks, bonds and mutual fund accounts may provide considerable tax advantages when used to fund a charitable contribution gift to Holy Angels.   Gifts of appreciated – and depreciated – assets offer tax-wise advantages.  Please call Holy Angels (318.797.8500) for details on how to make a gift of stock or other type of investment account.

Donor Advised Fund

Gifts from your Donor Advised Fund offer an easy way to support Holy Angels.   You simply need to share our address (Holy Angels – 10450 Ellerbe Road – Shreveport, LA 71106) with the Donor Advised Fund’s administrator when you recommend a grant to Holy Angels.

Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

For donors who are 70½ and older, the U.S. IRS allows you to make a distribution directly from your IRA to Holy Angels for up to  $100,000 per year.  For married couples who each have an IRA, the limit is $200,000 per year.  Many donors do this each year as a way to  satisfy the IRA’s Required Minimum Distribution rules.
