Corporate Matching Gifts

Double your gift to St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf! Matching Gift Programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. If your employer offers this program, your Human Resources Department can provide you with information and instructions on a Matching Gift Request Form. Most companies participating in a Matching Gift Program will contribute dollar-for-dollar your gift amount to St. Joseph Institute.


Gift of Stock

A gift of stock to St. Joseph Institute is a beneficial way to donate to your favorite nonprofit organization and receive tax benefit. Stock donations benefit the donor in two ways. First, the donor may deduct the fair market value of the stock from the tax return for that year as a charitable donation. Additionally, by donating the stock, the giver may avoid long-term capital gains tax. Talk with your financial adviser for full benefits.

How to transfer stock gifts

Transferring stock for donation purposes is relatively simple. Determine which stock to donate and how much you would like to transfer. Contact your broker for full details. They will finalize the transfer and St. Joseph Institute will issue a receipt once the stock is sold.


Planned Gift

A bequest is the act of giving or leaving financial assets or personal property through your will. After you’ve taken care of loved ones, you may also wish to leave a gift in your will to St. Joseph Institute; this donation can be as small or as large as you wish. By designating a gift through your will, you leave a legacy of listening and spoken language for future generations. Legacy gifts of all sizes play an invaluable role in the long-term sustainability of St. Joseph Institute. Please call our offices to discuss your wishes at (636) 532-3211 x236.

A Gift of Life Insurance

A Gift of Life Insurance can be donated to St. Joseph Institute. When donors find that they no longer need certain life insurance coverage that was purchased years ago, whether to provide for children or other family members, the policy can be converted into a charitable donation. Please consider St. Joseph Institute when you make these plans with your family.
