Giving to the Annual Pastoral Appeal is your way to gratefully respond, serving your parish and one another. Please consider a sacrificial gift.
Full credit of your gift to the Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) will be given to your parish and applied toward its assessment. Your parish will receive 100% of all gifts over its goal!
On-Line Giving: For your convenience, please visit our Diocesan website at www.dosp.org and go to the APA webpage to make your gift or plege payments online using a credit card.
Gifts of Cash: Checks should be made payable to the “Annual Pastoral Appeal.” Please make sure that your parish name and donor ID# is printed clearly on the check.
Credit Card: We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Simply provide your credit card details on your intent card or gift response envelope.
Pledging your gift over ten months: A gift to APA may be paid over ten months. If possible, please include your first month’s payment when you mail your pledge.
Gifts of Appreciated Stocks or Securities: Federal tax laws allow a charitable deduction for the full market value of the securities on the date of your gift. For more information or assistance, please contact David Ridenour, JCL, JV, Director of the Diocesan Tribunal at: 727-341-6858.
Matching Gifts: Many companies have Matching Gift Programs for charity or educational purposes. Contact your company’s Human Resource office to see if they offer this program. There are necessary applications and procedures to follow, then you can send the approved information to the Campaign Processing Office. This will maximize your gift to the Annual Pastoral Appeal.
