By including a bequest to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh in your will or living trust, you will make a profound difference in the lives of our communities’ most vulnerable individuals and their families for years to come. 

This flexible gift option can be revised at any time, and can be made as a specific amount or a percentage of your estate. In addition, your gift entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction. 

If you have already included a gift to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh or to our subsidiary Catholic the Catholic Charities Free Health Care Center in your will, please contact efiscus@ccpgh.org and let us know about your intentions. 

IRA Rollover

A Special Opportunity for Those 70½ Years Old and Older

You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit, and you can feel good knowing that you are making a great difference in the community. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover – please ask your financial advisor for details. 

Donate Stocks

If you give stocks you’ve owned for more than one year that are worth more than when you purchased them, you’ll qualify for significant tax advantages. 

Arrange a Charitable Trust

With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the charities of your choice. 

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF), which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts. 


How Your Planned Gifts Help

Planned gifts are vital to ensuring that future individuals in need can find hope and lasting solutions at Catholic Charities. Some donors have chosen to designate their support to a particular program, but others have allowed Catholic Charities the flexibility to use their gift for the greatest needs of the time. A member of the Catholic Charities Development team can help connect you to the right opportunity.  

If you complete the process outlined below and sign a Gift Agreement with Catholic Charities, your planned gift will be recognized as a deferred commitment in the current fiscal year and stewarded by the Catholic Charities Development Department.  

Please know that you and your spouse (if making a joint gift) can verify your planned gift commitment either by being 60 years of age on or before June 30, 2022, or by signing a Gift Agreement which states your planned gift commitment is irrevocable.
