EnvelopesSaint Joseph of Cupertino Parish uses an envelope contribution system that allows those enrolled to obtain a year-end-statement of their contributions. Everyone who takes part in this optional service provided by the parish is mailed quarterly packs of envelopes bearing an identifying number. You may register for the envelope system by contacting the parish office at 408/252-7653.
Automated OnLine GivingSaint Joseph of Cupertino Parish also uses an automated giving program through ParishSOFT LLC. ParishSOFT's myowngiving is a third party service which allows donors to set up and manage automatic transfers to the parish without setting up a formal bank transfer. This service provides an online web interface for the donor to control the automatic transfer, and allows the user to obtain reports at any time. Signing up for automated giving is easy and anyone can do it even if not formally registered with the parish office. Go to our Automated Giving Page, or contact the parish office for a printed form and the staff can set it up for you. Special automated giving slips are available in the vestibule of the church for you to fill out and drop in the collection basket if needed.
Previously, our Parish used ParishPay for automated giving. If you need to change your giving method from ParishPay, please use this link.
Bank AutoPayYour bank may provide automatic payment or transfer services. Contact your bank and the parish office for the necessary details.
Use of the Envelope System, Parish Pay or Bank AutoPay services are encouraged as they provide documentation to support parishioners' tax deductions.
Wills and BequestsPlease call the parish office and we will direct you to the staff member who can assist you with your charitable gift.
Charitable Gift AnnuitiesHave you ever considered making a bequest to the Parish at the time of your death?
Or maybe you would like to get a tax deduction from a gift now, possibly from an appreciated asset, and still get an income stream every year until your death?
Are you heavily invested in CD's for safety purposes and would like to get a higher guaranteed rate of return, part of which would be tax free, while benefiting the Parish? But perhaps you're living off your assets and need all of them now. So you're deferring making a bequest until your death, even though you know that the gift may be subject to Estate Taxes.
All of these things and more could be addressed by making a "Charitable Gift Annuity" now. More on how Charitable Gift Annuities work...
