Donations

“How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good He has done for me?”  PSALM 116:12

Assumption depends on the generosity of our parishioners and friends to meet the extraordinary demands that come with maintaining a vibrant parish, school, and religious education program. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we can continue to offer a holy and spiritually enriching environment in our beloved parish.

Assumption is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your contribution may be considered a charitable deduction on your tax return.  Assumption will provide donors with a written accounting of contributions in January of each year for the past calendar year.

Assumption accepts gifts made by check or electronic funds transfer (EFT).  Please make all checks payable to Assumption Church.  Checks may be placed in the collection basket during Masses or in the secure lock boxes located in the gathering space or the school office at any time.  Deposit envelopes are located near each secure lock box.

We encourage use of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) to assist the parish with a steady cash flow to finance all operations.  Our secure electronic funds transfer program operates at no cost to the parish or the donor.

Please consider donating to Assumption in one of the following ways:

Operating Fund Donations

The most needed method of providing support for Assumption Church is through tithing or other undesignated cash donations.   Your support for the general operating fund finances: liturgical supplies and ministries; salaries and benefits of the parish and school staff; the religious education program; utilities; and general maintenance of the facilities.

Restricted Fund Donations

Assumption maintains a restricted fund for all donations specified for a specific purpose.  The restricted funds are not mingled with or used for general operating purposes.  Each restricted fund has an established purpose and use that is approved by the Assumption Finance Council.  the Assumption Catholic Church Foundation Fund, the Assumption School Scholarship Fund (EASE) and Beaver Catholic Cemetery are included in the parish restricted funds.  If you wish to make a contribution to any restricted fund(s), please note the fund(s) on your check or the deposit envelope.
