The Office of Stewardship and Development is pleased to be a partner and resource for parishes, agencies and schools in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.  We facilitate the processing of many gift types.

While our offices are closed from December 21 thru January 1, I will check messages at least once each day and respond as quickly as possible.  To assist you with a more immediate response, please see the resources that follow, noting that the underlined information provides a hyperlink to additional resources and forms:

Gifts of securities – Donating stock and mutual funds are completed through three easy steps:  initiate the transfer with your broker, notify the archdiocese about the transfer and finally confirm your transfer with your broker.  Complete details are available online.

IRA Charitable Qualified Distributions – Details on the IRA Charitable Rollover program for individuals 70-1/2 years are older are available here.  To complete an IRA Charitable  Qualified Distribution, two forms are available for your review.  The first form listed on the webpage notifies the archdiocese of the gift; the second form is sample language which can be used by the donor to communicate with the custodian of the IRA.

IQE Tax Credit Program – Your gift to the Indiana State Tax Credit Scholarship Program benefits the students and families in the 68 Archdiocesan elementary and high schools throughout central and southern Indiana who seek a quality Catholic education. Take advantage of a 50% state tax credit by transforming the life of a deserving student. Learn more at the Institute for Quality Education website or contact Kim Pohovey at kpohovey@archindy.org.  Please note, if you are interested in making a gift of stock to this program, our office cannot assist with this transfer as it much be processed by the Institute for Quality Education. More information on their process is outlined here.

Legacy Giving – The Catholic Community Foundation offers a wide variety of options for legacy giving.  Some allow you to make the gift immediately, some provide you and your family income for a period of time before the account transfers to the beneficiary and others become active when your estate is settled.  More information about Legacy Giving is available at www.archindy.org/ccf.

United Catholic Appeal Contributions – Contributions to the United Catholic Appeal can be made online or by returning your pledge card through the mail.  All gifts made online or USPS envelopes postmarked December 31 or before will be processed and acknowledged as gifts during the 2018 calendar year.

Specific Ministry Appeals and Outright Gifts – If you are looking to make a check or credit card payment to a specific parish or school, we recommend that you contact them.  Agency resources can be found at www.archindy.org by selecting the “Support Our Ministries” dropdown box which is the just to the right of the scrolling photos. All gifts made online or USPS envelopes postmarked December 31 or before will be processed and acknowledged as gifts during the 2018 calendar year.
