Send a Unique Card and Gift This Year

The Sisters of St. Joseph have memorial and tribute cards for you to send to a person you wish to honor or to remember someone who has died. All cards feature the artwork of the Sisters of St. Joseph (some examples displayed below) and tell the recipient that a gift has been given in his or her name to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet to continue their network of hope and healing to the people they serve. There are sympathy and general tribute cards and cards that celebrate birthdays, Christmas, Mother’s Day, as well as thinking of you, congratulations, and all occasion cards. To order any of these cards, please call 651.690.7018 or email psummers@csjministriesfoundation.org

Schedule a recurring gift!

Making monthly or recurring gifts is an easy, convenient way for you to give and allows us to plan on your support for the Sisters’ ministries. It is easy to get started.

  1. Donate online and check “Make this a monthly gift” under “Recurring Gift”
  2. Mail in your intent along with a voided check to: Sisters of St. Joseph Ministries Foundation 1884 Randolph Ave. Saint Paul, MN 55105
  3. Phone Peggy at 651.690.7018 with your credit card information.

You will receive a receipt every January for tax reporting purposes. You may stop your recurring gift at any time by notifying the Ministries Foundation.

If you have stock that you have held for more than a year that has appreciated with the growth of the stock market, consider a gift of stock to the Ministries Foundation this year. This is an easy and seamless way to make a meaningful contribution to the Foundation that has no impact on your cash flow.

Giving appreciated securities provides significant benefits including

  • immediate charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock—up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income.
  • avoidance of capital gains taxes that would normally be due upon sale
  • You can carry forward any unclaimed portion of the deduction for up to five additional years, subject to the annual limit.

To make a stock gift:

  1. Instruct your broker to transfer shares to the Ministries Foundation account.
    1. UBS account number 7A21274
    2. DTC is 0221
    3. Our broker is Michael Walstien at 612.303.5293
  2. Since the recipient organization doesn’t always receive donor information from the broker, please send an email to asarverbodoh@csjministriesfoundation.org to notify us of your gift. This can also expedite the process.

Transfers must be received by our broker by end of business on December 31 to count for the current tax year.
