  Stewardship/OtherWays to Give Ways To Give

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them for everyone. To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11

 Corporate Matching Gift Programs

Double your gift!  Many donors enhance the impact of their gifts through their employer's matching gifts program; some even match gifts made by retirees and spouses. 

Contact your personnel or human resource department for eligibility requirements and an application form and begin doubling your gift to St. Dominic. If your employer doesn't have a matching gift program, ask that it consider starting one. For more information about matching gifts, contact Karen Chaffee at the parish center offices.

St. Dominic Prayer Gardens

St. Dominic Prayer Gardens  We ask for your prayerful consideration in helping us maintain a special place at St. Dominic Catholic Parish. The Prayer Garden will grew in stages and is be enjoyed in many different ways. This place provides comfort to those seeking a quiet place to reflect and remember.  It is a place for rejoicing with a newly married bride and groom as they pose for many happily-ever-after photos.  It is a place to gather for First Communion and baptismal pictures.

To help support our gardens, please visit our Prayer Gardens web pages for more information.

 


St. Dominic Endowment Fund

St. Dominic Endowment Fund:  We have a parish endowment fund dedicated solely towards the furtherance of Catholic education here at St. Dominic. Catholic education includes both our day school and Christian Formation programs.

The endowment fund is truly a gift that keeps on giving. By its very nature, an endowment fund requires that the principal amount of any gift remain untouched. Only the earnings generated from the principal are used to support the mission of the St. Dominic Parish Endowment Fund.  


Memorial Tree Donations

Planting Requirements and Procedures: St. Dominic Parish is blessed with a beautiful campus enhanced by abundant trees and other landscaping.  Members have requested the opportunity to plant a tree in memory of a loved one. The planting requirements and procedures were developed for this purpose.  Possible recognition options are under consideration.

Other Gift Opportunities

Cemetery Care Fund:  This fund supports the ongoing care of St. Dominic Cemetery located at the intersection of Marcy and Lisbon Roads.    

Financial Assistance Grants: This program awards funds for tuition assistance for the parish day school and lifelong faith formation programs. The amount of an individual grant is determined each year based on the amount of funds available and the applicant’s specific need. We are proud to offer a program of fair distribution of funds so that Catholic education may be a more affordable option for some families.

Human Concerns & Outreach Fund: This fund supports a wide variety of human concerns and outreach ministries that serve the poor, homebound, sick and elderly in our own community and all over the world.    

Capital Improvements Fund: This fund supports improvements to our parish facilities as indicated in the Master Plan. The most recent plan approved by the Parish Council in April 2008 recommends improvements to our campus to be accomplished as funds allow. Master Plan projects include renovating the interior of the church, building a new athletic facility, renovating the existing gym into an arts and activities center, adding an expanded narthex to the church, renovating the Marcy Center, and expanding the school.    

Non-designated Gifts: There are times when a non-designated gift can make a big difference in addressing a need that arises.  These gifts of cash, bequests, or appreciated stock given to St. Dominic Catholic Parish may facilitate a parish need or project, as determined by the pastor and parish trustees.    

Prayer & Worship Fund: This fund supports special purchases designed to enhance the experience of prayer and worship at the parish. The fund is used to purchase items such as vestments, liturgical books, altar linens and liturgical vessels.                      

Future Priest & Deacon Training Fund: This fund is designed to help underwrite the educational and formational expenses of parish members who enter the seminary to study for the priesthood, sisterhood or permanent diaconate. Funds will also be used to help underwrite the costs incurred through participation in the Teaching Parish Seminarian Training Program.

Technology Fund: This fund  supports ongoing parish-wide technology initiatives, including maintenance, development, training, and new hardware and software.  

Alumni Association: This fund supports our efforts to honor our graduates, create opportunities for  alumni to re-establish the many friendships fostered over their years at St. Dominic School, and connect our alumni with our parish community by helping to underwrite the alumni newsletter and class reunions.    

Athletic Association: This fund supports the St. Dominic athletic programs for day school and lifelong faith formation students, including T-ball, baseball, volleyball, basketball, track, and CYM sports teams for high school students. Fair play and a spirit of good sportsmanship flow from the Catholic environment based on the love of God and of one another.    

Fine Arts Association: This fund supports the mission of the St. Dominic’s Fine Arts Association (FAA) which is “to provide artistic experiences, centered on Christ, which inspire our community to discover, develop and demonstrate their God-given talents while building the foundation for a lifelong appreciation of the arts.”  The FAA mission is built on the conviction that the arts can transform lives. The FAA encompasses K3 through grade 8 activities including music, visual arts, drama, forensics and dance.

Please contact Karen Chaffee, Director of Finance Administration for additional information or to make a donation, 262.781.3480 Ext. 223.
