Thanks to you, the Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota (CCF) was able to grant more than $24M to our community in the 2023 fiscal year. This is only possible with your support. We are so grateful to you.
As we head into the holiday season and you consider your charitable giving for the end of this taxable year, please keep the following in mind.
Stock Gift Reminder
IMPORTANT: If you are planning to gift stock to your donor advised fund, please call our office at 651-389-0300 and let us know. Having this information in advance will help us process your gift efficiently and effectively. Without complete stock transfer information, CCF will not be able to deposit proceeds to your donor advised fund.
- The minimum grant amount is $200.
- • Under IRS rules, you cannot make a grant for a membership, to fulfill a pledge, to attend a charity event, or to pay tuition for an individual.
- • CCF screens all grantees for tax status, allowable purpose, financial health, accountability/transparency, and alignment with Catholic social teaching.
