Ways to Give
Fall Offertory Program
This time of year we begin our annual Fall Offertory Program and humbly ask for you to maintain or, if possible, increase your parish giving. There are several ways you can do this, but the easiest and most convenient is through electronic giving. Faith Direct is a safe and secure way to set up your weekly or monthly offertory gift as well as second collections. Step-by-step instructions may be found here.
A stewardship mailing was sent out in September. Please take a moment to review the letter, step chart and pledge form. We ask that you please complete the pledge form by November 1, 2022. If you have any questions or did not receive your mailing please contact Mary Beliveau for a copy [email protected] or 410-464-4003. Thank you for your support!
Set up recurring online giving with Faith Direct - Cathedral’s code is MD500.
Text the word “Give” to 410-390-0999.
Gifts in Memory
Gifts of remembrance or memorial or loved ones can be made via Faith Direct or by sending a check to the Parish Office made payable to Cathedral of Mary Our Queen.
Visit the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s website to learn more about the Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries.
A planned gift is a way to maximize your charitable tax benefits while leaving a lasting impact at Cathedral. Below are different gift options for your consideration. We encourage you to consult your financial advisor or attorney about the plan you are interested in to determine your exact deductions and tax benefits and the legal principles that apply to your situation.
A bequest can be made through a will or a trust or by making the Cathedral a beneficiary of a retirement plan. Cathedral has been blessed over the years to receive many generous gifts from individuals who included us in their estate plans. If you would like to include the Cathedral in your will or trust, create a charitable gift annuity or, if you are older than 70 1/2, make a gift through an IRA Charitable Roll over, please contact the Development Office at 410-464-4000 or [email protected].
Gifts of Stock and Appreciated Securities
Gifts of stock and appreciated securities (shares of common stock in a company or units of mutual funds that are worth more today than when they were acquired) provide an immediate charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the gift the day the gift is completed. The donor also avoids paying the capital gains tax that would result from a sale of securities.
Stock gifts to the Cathedral are processed by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. To make a stock gift, please instruct your broker to contact one of the following:
