Matching Gifts

Many corporations match the charitable contributions of employees. Please contact your company’s Human Resource professional to determine if your company participates in the Matching Gift Program.

Tax Advantages of Donating to the ADA
Federal and state laws on income and inheritance taxes encourage charitable giving. All donations to the ADA are fully tax deductible! Please keep in mind that it may be particularly advantageous for some individuals to contribute stock, appreciated securities, real estate, and other valuables. In many cases, the tax savings may be more than the original investment in the gift. Because each situation is unique, we urge donors to discuss such donations with a financial advisor.

If you have any questions about the Annual Diocesan Appeal, or would like more information about making a donation, please call the ADA Office at (408) 983-0293 or (408) 983-0250.
