Matching Gift Programs & Giving Opportunities
Your generosity will allow us to carry on the work of Jesus Christ here in our community.
Online Giving is Easy, Quick, and Secure
In light of increasing requests for the ability to give online, St. Charles Borromeo Parish is happy to provide our donors with a secure and easy way to support the mission and ministry of our organization.
Online giving is one of the fastest forms of charitable giving. Our online giving program is administered by the Archdiocese of St. Louis. It allows you to make a gift directly to our organization through either an ACH (Automated Clearing House) transfer of funds, or through MasterCard, Visa, or Discover credit card gift. We invite all current and new donors to try this quick and simple way of supporting our organization.
The information you share in the giving process is only used to transact the gift and is never transferred to our organization or the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The only information we will receive is your name, address, and the amount of your gift. Your name will not be shared with any other group or organization. There is no charge to you for using either the fund transfer or the credit card option in this giving program.
We thank you for considering a gift to St. Charles Borromeo Parish. To make your gift now, simply click below. You will be directed to an Archdiocese of St. Louis website that will walk you through the online giving process in a series of secure pages to complete your transaction.
You can choose to assign your gift to one of 3 areas:
"Help a Student"
If you prefer to mail your gift, you may send checks to:St. Charles Borromeo Parish 601 North 4th Street St. Charles, MO 63301
Corporate Matching Gifts Program
There are over 1000 companies nationally and over 40 companies in the area that offer Company Matching Gift programs for their employees and/or retirees. St. Charles Borromeo School is one of the private elementary schools that qualifies for company Matching Gifts. At St. Charles Borromeo School, all eligible contributions for matching gifts are budgeted for School Support or the Help-A-Student Program; the funds received from various companies will be credited to these same accounts. Parishioners can make their monthly contributions by using the special St. Charles Borromeo School Support Matching Gift Program envelope. Checks must, however, be made payable to St. Charles Borromeo School and a new Company Matching Gift Program form must be submitted with each contribution received from parishioners participating in the Matching Gift program. In most cases the minimum amount companies will match is $25.
Parishioners either employed or retired from any of these companies should contact their Human Resources office to inquire about their matching gifts program. If you have any questions, contact Ken Kapeller at 636-946-3356.
