Many people give to charity but most want to know that their donation is being used for the purpose intended. We assure you that by supporting the IHMs through check, credit card, financial agency or planned giving, you participate directly in the mission and good works of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and are prayed for each day in every IHM convent home. While donations are gratefully accepted at any time, the annual appeal and a special Giving Tuesday campaign is conducted during November. A remittance envelope is included in the winter and summer magazines for those who wish to give additional gift.
WAYS OF GIVING Make a gift online
Each November, an appeal is made to all donors for financial support. This request has varied levels of giving and all contributions are noted in our Annual Appeal Report that reaches your home in October. In February and June, our magazine will highlight our ministries, our sisters, and Camilla Hall, keeping you in touch with IHM happenings.
Scheduled Gifts (Monthly or Quarterly – our Marian Circle Annual Giving Tuesday)
Regular and ongoing contributions provide funding for current needs and create a stable base upon which we can build for the future. Donations for Camilla Hall, IHM Ministries, IHM Retirement Fund, South America, Literacy Center or General Superior’s Discretion can be mailed to Office of Mission Advancement 230 IHM Drive Malvern, PA 19355 (checks payable to Sisters of IHM) or by credit card.

Remembering Others (Memorials and Honorary gifts)
Gifts in memory of a deceased loved one or in honor of a special person can be made at any time through the Mission Advancement Office. All gifts are acknowledged and the person’s name is listed in the Annual Report.
The reasons that donors make charitable bequests are as varied as the donors themselves, but perhaps one common denominator is a sincere desire to give back to the community or to a particular charitable organization. Bequests comprise property that is bequeathed in a will. Bequests are 100% tax deductible for federal and state estate taxes and may place your estate in a lower estate tax bracket.
Please consult your attorney if you feel that a bequest clause to the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary or Camilla Hall in your will is an option you would like to pursue.
The three most common ways to make a bequest are:
donate a percentage of your estate (___% of my estate.)
bequeath a specific dollar amount ($ ______specific dollar amount).
designate a residual or remainder of Your Estate. Residual refers to whatever is left after other bequests have been granted.
Sample language: “I give, devise, and bequeath to the Convent of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Malvern, PA or to Camilla Hall…
Your lawyer will require the tax identification number. If making the bequest to the Congregation, the EIN is 23-1352569. If making the bequest to Camilla the EIN is 23-1576706.
Benefactors who choose to remember the Sisters of IHM/Camilla Hall in their wills are enrolled as members of the Alphonsus Ligouri Society. When the estate is settled and the gift is received, a mass is offered for you at Camilla Hall and you are perpetually enrolled in the Spiritual Treasury, sharing forever in the prayers of the IHM Sisters.
United Way, Workplace Giving, and Matching Gifts
Charitable giving in the work place may be an opportunity or an expectation for you. As you discern your ability to give, consider these various avenues to forward funds to the IHM Sisters.
Many employers sponsor Matching Gift Programs, in which they match charitable contributions made by their employees. This method doubles a benefactor’s donation and is a great blessing to the IHM sisters. Please contact your human resource department to inquire if your employer does offer matching gifts and what process needs to be followed.
Donating to the United Way at the workplace is a common vehicle for charitable giving. If you choose to donate to United Way, please consider designating your gift to Camilla Hall #02026.
Some places of employment offer work place giving by providing the option of automatic payroll deduction designated for a specific charity. This insures a systematic method of giving to the IHM Sisters and may make your charitable giving easier for you and a predictable source of funding for the sisters.
If you are over 70 years old, you can make a charitable IRA rollover from your annual disbursement. It is a great way to support the Sisters of IHM while saving income taxes through a Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity. QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, as long as certain rules are met. In addition to the benefits of giving to charity, a QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare.
Donor Advised Fund, is a giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like. It is then at the donor’s discretion when grants will be made to their chosen charities.
A donor-advised fund is a little like a personal charitable savings account. The accounts are controlled by a nonprofit, called a sponsoring organization that invests the assets and manages the donor’s account. Once a fund is established, donors tell the sponsoring organization to which nonprofit(s) they wish to donate from their account.
