Ways to Give

Ways to Share Our Gifts


PLEDGING: Choosing to pledge with your desired payment schedule over time may allow you to be more generous. Monthly reminders will be sent.

GIFT by CHECK: Whether your gift is a one-time, paid-in-full gift or an installment of a pledged gift, please make your check payable to: Diocese of Metuchen-Bishop’s Annual Appeal.

GIFT of APPRECIATED STOCK or SECURITIES: Federal tax laws allow a charitable deduction for the full market value of stock or securities on the date they are gifted. Appreciated securities can provide an attractive means of giving. A gift of securities can be made by transferring stock to the Diocese of Metuchen.For a guide, click  How to make a Gift of Stock or Securities.  

MATCHING YOUR GIFT: Many companies have a Matching Gift Program where they will provide a matched gift to charitable entities supported by their employees.  This can increase the impact of your gift to the Diocese of Metuchen considerably by doubling and in some cases even tripling the total impact of your gift.  To see if your employer has a Matching Gift Program please contact your company's human resources department; they can provide the necessary information and forms you will need.

To find out if your company has a program, see our Matching Gift Brochure or use our Online Matching Gift Tool

PLANNED GIVING:  Planned or deferred gifts represent a special type of support that benefits you, the donor, and the Diocese. Often a planned gift allows you to maximize your contribution and provide you specific income and estate tax advantages. Planned gifts may also offer you income during your lifetime. The Diocese of Metuchen can provide you with information and assistance if you are considering a planned gift.
