  • Income tax deductions
  • Reduced or eliminated capital gains taxes
  • Lifetime incomes for yourself and your spouse
  • Reduced or eliminated estate taxes
  • Preserved financial assets
  • Reduced or eliminated gift taxes

The most common types of planned gifts are:

  • Outright Gifts
  • Life Income Gifts
  • Remainder Trusts
  • Real Estate
  • Lead Trusts
  • Life Insurance Gifts
  • Gifts Through Your Estate

These are some of the easiest ways to provide for your family, remember the Society and realize tax advantages. Planned gifts require the services of a professional to complete. You will need an attorney, accountant, bank trust officer, financial planner, insurance professional, or, at times, all of these. We strongly advise you to discuss any and all financial plans with a professional advisor.

If you would like more information on Planned Giving and including the Society in your estate plans, please call the St. Vincent de Paul office at (208) 331-8409.

COVID-19 Update 3/25/20
Based on the new stay-at-home order we have modified our Coronavirus response.

-Effectively Immediately; all of our Thrift Stores are Closed until further notice
-The Meridian food pantry is closed until further notice. Clients are encouraged to visit our Overland food pantry.
-That food pantry has been deemed essential and will stay open as long as there are volunteers and food on the shelves.

We are not an organization with a large savings account or assets tied up for a rainy day. We always give what we have to the community. This pandemic has left us without many of our revenue streams and more requests for assistance than ever before. We are hemorrhaging cash and resources. We could close our doors, but the community needs us. So we need you. If you are in a stable financial position, please consider an emergency donation to St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho.

We are standing up for our neighbors in this crisis, will you stand with us?
