Endowments
Endowments provide permanent support for the Foundation and their impact cannot be overstated.  These gifts keep on giving as the principal is invested - never spent - and each year a distribution, like dividends on a mutual fund account, is made to your chosen program or area.  Investment earnings above the dividend rate help the endowment value grow over time, to keep pace with inflation and maintain your endowment's spending power.

Many organizations having matching gift or volunteer incentive programs for their employees. For instance, the volunteer incentive program at Verizon recognizes employees' contributions of time and talent to nonprofit organizations. Employees are eligible to apply for a grant on behalf of the qualified organization where they volunteered 50 hours or more during the year.
We enourage you to check with your employer today to see if your contributions to the Saint Peter Claver Foundation are eligible for a matching gift or if there is a volunteer incentive program.


There are many endowment opportunities and funding levels available.  Choosing what your endowed gift will support is simply a matter of selecting a program that matches your interests.  Your legacy can take any form and make a big difference.

Material Donations

GIFTS OF STOCK - IRS tax regulations allow you to donate stocks and mutual funds to the Claver Foundation.  Your stock broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via direct transfer to the Claver Foundation.  Giving a gift of publicaly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash.

GIFTS OF PERSONAL PROPERTY - If you are interested in donating your personal property to the Saint Peter Claver Foundation, please use this page as a guide for your donation.
Gifts of personal property to the Saint Peter Claver Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) organization, are fully tax deductible in the year they are given.  To determine the amount of the deduction, you must determine the "Fair Market Value" (FMV) of the donated items.  Often, this is different than the original price paid for the items due to fluctuating markets.  For more information on how to determine the FMV of personal property, please see the IRS Guide on Determining the Value of Donated Property. 
Gifts of tangible personal property are subject to various legal regulations.  For more information about our acceptance policy and how to make an in-kind gift, please contact Grant Jones, Executive Director at (504) 821-4225 or at gjones@kofpc.org .
