Ways to Give


By Mail

Please mail your pledge form or one-time gift to:
The Basilica of Saint Mary
Development Office
PO Box 50010
Minneapolis, MN

By Automatic Withdrawal

Choose to automatic withdrawal from your checking account or automatically charge your credit card. Besides saving paper, there’s no need to worry about bringing your weekly envelopes to Mass every Sunday!

Stock Gifts

Gifts of stock, bonds, and mutual funds that have increased in value since you owned them can result in extra tax savings. You can deduct the full current market value of the stock on your tax return and avoid paying capital gains tax. If your portfolio has incurred losses, you can use those losses to reduce your regular income. We'll provide you with all the necessary information and tax-deduction notification. Please contact Audra Johnson or Char Myhre 612.333.1381.

Planned Gifts

For many, utilizing a planned giving method creates an optimal way to exercise the stewardship of treasure, our financial resources.

Leaving a gift through your will, establishing a charitable remainder trust, creating a gift annuity or designating The Basilica as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy are just a few of the ways you could plan to make a difference.

All individuals and families who make a planned gift to The Basilica automatically become members of The Basilica’s Heritage Society, which recognizes those who've chosen to ensure The Basilica’s future.

Please contact Robin Keyworth at 612.333.1381 for more information on a variety of planned gift opportunities.
