YEAR-END GIVING AND TAX BENEFITS
As the end of the year approaches, we begin to reflect upon the many blessings bestowed upon us. It also provides a great opportunity to thank God for these blessings.
This is also the time of year when people consider giving charitable contributions to their favorite charities. We hope that you consider St. Nicholas Catholic Church as one of your favorites.
As you do your tax planning, we hope you will consider making good use of the income tax charitable deduction. Your year-end gift can significantly reduce your income taxes while providing meaningful support to St. Nicholas. Regardless of your income, in most cases, you can lower the taxes you pay through charitable giving. Of course, the amount of the income tax savings will depend on your tax bracket. As you know, giving is about much more than tax savings. Your charitable gifts make an important difference in what we are able to accomplish here at St. Nicholas.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED GENEROSITY!
