It’s been said that one dreamer breathes life into the next. At Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community we have embraced the dream of a transformed Roman Catholic Church. Financial support is essential to breathe life into this dream and to keep it alive for future generations. To underscore our commitment, we support a full-time paid priest (ordained through Roman Catholic WomanPriests), a part-time musician, and a part time administrative assistant as well as a variety of social justice activities. We have an annual Sunday collection pledge drive and a variety of other fundraising activities, including planned giving.
Your donation will help to make our vision for a welcoming and inclusive Roman Catholic Church a reality. We welcome gifts from persons who share our vision but live too far away to attend Sunday liturgy. Most donors simply write a small or large check or arrange a money order payable to “MMACC” and mail it to:
MMACC c/o Gethsemane Lutheran Church
2696 Melbourne Dr.
San Diego, CA 92123.
Such cash gifts enable us to put your contribution to work right away. Here are some other ways you can donate to Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community (MMACC) a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation (Federal Tax ID Number: 26-0136035).
Convenient Ways to Donate to MMACC
- Credit Card Donation: MMACC also welcomes Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit card gifts. Simply click on the Donate Now link on this page. Note: Network for Good is a secure online donation system that has served thousands of nonprofit organizations. To find out more about this service, visit www.networkforgood.org. The website charges the donor a 5% fee on donation amount. You have the option of paying the fee in addition to the donation or having fee deducted from donation amount.
- Automated Check Payment: Some of our donors find it convenient to have their bank send monthly checks directly to MMACC from their bank accounts. You can usually set this up through "online bill pay" with your bank. Use the above address as the payee address. It has been our experience that banks generally do not charge for this service. You should be able to set up a recurring or one time payment based on your preference.
- Stock donations: Others have found the gifting of stocks to be particularly beneficial from a tax standpoint, a way both to avoid capital gains taxes and to receive full value as a charitable deduction. To transfer stock electronically, send a letter to your broker or banker stating you wish to transfer securities to MMACC. Specify the type of stock, the number of shares that you are donating, whether your gift is unrestricted or for a specific purpose, and the date by which the gift should be transferred (two to three business days is normal). Your letter should also include information that we will provide you. Please call (619-334-1722), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or complete the Contact Us Form regarding the gift and to provide information as to what and how much is being transferred. We will provide you with transfer instructions.
- Single Annual Donation: Another option is to make a single, annual donation via check, credit card, disbursement from an IRA, disbursement from a charitable investment fund, or donation of stock.
