Ways of Giving

Ways of Giving

St. Ursula Villa gratefully accepts a wide range of gifts to further our educational mission. 

Cash gifts

Most gifts are made with outright cash donations, including by check or credit card. You may also give securely online. Your cash gift is tax-deductible in the year of the gift.

Matching Gifts

With matching gifts, you can sometimes double or even triple the impact of your gift to benefit St. Ursula Villa. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions from their employees. Some companies even match gifts made by their retirees and or employee spouses. Find out if your company matches your charitable donations.


You may also indicate your intention to give through our downloadable pledge form. Simply complete and sign the form, and return to the Advancement Office.


Appreciated securities are an excellent vehicle for benfiting the Villa. You may sescure a charitable tax deduction based upon the full fair market value of the appreciated securities, avoid capital gains tax, make a meaning ful gift to the Villa that costs less than cash.

Tangible Personal Property

If you donate a tangible asset to St. Ursula Villa which has appreciated in value, such as a work of art, and if the asset is used by St. Ursula Villa in its educational program, you may receive a charitable tax deduction equal to the asset’s full fair market value. However, if St. Ursula Villa does not use the asset, your charitable deduction may be limited to the asset’s cost basis.
