Give

Thank you for keeping our parish strong by your continuing contributions and support!

St. John’s partners with givecentral.org to process all online gifts. You can give a one-time gift or schedule ongoing donations using your checking account, debit or credit card — it’s simple and secure.

If you have questions or need any help, please contact John Papania at 410-964-1425 x314 or john.papania@sjerc.org

Planned Gifts

  • Life Insurance: you can simply name St. John’s as beneficiary.
  • Bequests: you can name St. John’s in your will as a beneficiary, and your estate will receive an estate tax deduction for the value of your bequest. A bequest written in a will can be made for a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount or for a specific asset, such as stock or real estate.
  • Retirement Assets – beneficiary: you can name St. John’s as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) or other qualified retirement plans. Any amounts remaining in your plan will transfer to St. John the Evangelist, free of income and estate tax.
  • Retirement Assets – RMD/QCD: if you have reached the age where you need to make required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your traditional IRAs, you can avoid paying taxes on them by donating to St. John’s using a qualified charitable distribution (QCD).

If you want to name St. John the Evangelist in your will as a beneficiary, the official name to use is: St. John the Evangelist, Columbia, Roman Catholic Congregation, Inc.

If you would like to leave money to the Endowment, there are three different accounts. The account names are:

  1. The St. John the Evangelist, Columbia Parish Endowment Fund (this account is for parish support)
  2. The St. John the Evangelist, Columbia Catholic Education Endowment (this account is for religious education)
