We encourage you to set up an automated giving schedule to have your “first fruits” go to the Lord every time. Our online giving portal lets you easily set up a recurring gift via your debit card, credit card, or checking account.
Gift of Real Estate
Under certain circumstances, St. Mary accepts gifts of Real Estate. Donating appreciated Real Estate can afford you significant tax advantages while allowing a substantial gift to the Church that avoids capital gains taxes.
Give Vie Check
Checks can be made payable to “St. Mary Armenian Church” and dropped off at the church office, or mailed to: St. Mary Armenian Church, 148 22nd Street, Costa Mesa CA 92627
Setting up a well-designed estate plan may protect your loved ones from expensive probate taxes, allowing you to use the savings to leave a legacy gift for the Church.
Make a Tax- Free IRA Gift
If you are 72 or older, you may now instruct your IRA custodian to transfer any amount up to $10,000 directly to St. Mary. This distribution would not be included in your taxable income (but could fulfill any required minimum distribution requirements) and would not produce an income tax deduction.
Gift of Stocks & Mutual Fund
Giving appreciated assets – such as stock – often allows you to maximize a gift. Typically, you can receive a tax deduction for the value of the stock on the day it was given, regardless of the cash basis (original purchase price) of the stock. Capital gains taxes are avoided.
