WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE
Recent changes in the tax code (Sec. 170(f) (17)) make it mandatory that receipts be available for all cash contributions deducted on your tax return. Itemized deductions for contributions to the Blessed Sacrament Church will require a direct deposit from your bank or your parish envelope. We track all contributions through the envelopes and can provide a year-end written statement of those contributions. It is very important to start now by using WeShare with an option of direct payment from your bank or a credit card or use envelopes if you plan on deducting any contributions of cash on your tax return.
The use of envelopes insures our parishioner’s receive proper credit and a year-end
statement of all monies contributed through the envelopes. Drop your envelopes in the
Sunday baskets, drop them at rectory, or mail them to the parish address. Your may also
drop them in any of the area parishes where you happen to visit for worship and they will
be sent to Blessed Sacrament Church.

WILLS & ESTATE PLANNING
Some individuals may want to remember Blessed Sacrament Church in their wills, and may restrict the donation to the various ministries or operations of the parish. There are various ways to give from the estate through trusts, etc. A lawyer and tax professional may be needed to guide you through the complex laws in order to maximize the
contribution and estate funds. Your wishes are the most important factor to be concerned with. We pray for all of our generous contributions.
