More Ways to Give

You or your organization can make an impact for those in need across Eastern Massachusetts.

Please note that our Agency does not accept furniture or clothing donations.

Donate Stock

Gifts of stock or other securities are a way to reduce your tax liability while supporting the work and mission of Catholic Charities of Boston. You may receive a charitable deduction for the market value of the stock at the time the gift is made. Before you make a gift of appreciated securities, consult your financial planner or tax advisor to determine how the potential tax advantages apply to your situation.

Donate A Vehicle

Help support the programs of Catholic Charities of Boston by donating your used car, truck, boat, or motorcycle. The vehicle does not have to be running. Donate your car and a representative will contact you to schedule a pick up of your vehicle. You will receive a tax benefit from the total sale and Catholic Charities will receive 80% of the net proceeds. Find out more here.

If you or your spouse are employed or retired from a matching gift company, your contribution to the Catholic Charities could be significantly increased. If you are making an online donation, indicate your matching gift company in the comments section. If sending your donation in the mail, complete the matching gift information on the reverse side of your pledge card.
