"Building for a New Century"

March 2-3, 2002

Issue #7

Over $675,000 raised!

As the result of our second consecutive excellent Volunteer Report meeting, the amount of gifts and pledges to "Building for a New Century" has climbed to $678,402! We are two-thirds of the way to our goal, but plenty of work remains. The St. Robert's family has responded very generously thus far, and we encourage those of you who will be contacted in the coming weeks to help build upon the momentum which has been established. Join the success!

Ways to Contribute…

Some parishioners have asked about the various ways in which gifts may be made to the "Building for a New Century" campaign. The most common method is a pledged gift, which usually involves a gift paid over time. Donors also have the option of giving securities (a gift of appreciated securities may provide a substantial tax advantage), or real estate/personal property. Of course, all gifts are gratefully appreciated and acknowledged.

Questions & Answers…


What is the process when I make my gift?


When a gift is made, the Intent Form/Pledge Card is turned into our campaign office, where the corresponding "Thank You" note is generated for Fr. Ring to sign. It is then given to our Parish Secretary, Kathy Hanley, who records it and files it with all other Intent Forms and Pledge Cards. Once or twice per week (on average), all checks and cash are forwarded to our Accounts Receivable manager, Sue Lynch, who deposits them. Neither the gift document nor corresponding gift amount is shared with anyone else.



How much should I give to "Building for a New Century"?


All of us have varying financial resources and obligations; thus, there is no set amount that each donor can contribute. As a result, each of us is being asked to consider an investment commensurate with his/her ability to give. This campaign is based on EQUAL SACRIFICES, NOT EQUAL GIFTS.


Please Pray for the Success of this campaign!
