Please remember St. Francis Xavier Parish in your Estate Plan and Annual Charitable Donations.  

St. Francis Xavier Parish has long relied on the generosity of our parishioners who remember the parish in their estate planning and annual year-end donations.

Grow Your Contribution Over Time

Gift pledges are formal statements of intention to make a gift. With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time. Each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax deduction.

  • Endowed gifts are safely invested to generate income in perpetuity, providing you an opportunity to make a lasting impact. Gifts can be directed towards an area of service (liturgy, faith formation, social outreach, building and grounds, etc), or to greatest need.
  • Company Matching Gifts double or sometimes triple the impact of your individual gift.  To find out if your employer offers a matching gift program, contact your employer’s personnel office and request a matching gift form.  Complete and mail to St. Francis Xavier Parish at 420 Pine St., Missoula, MT 59802. Retirees may also be eligible .
