Other Ways to Give
Outright cash gifts are the easiest to give. You may donate through a check, credit card or monthly pledge payment. Undesignated gifts are donations that are used where the Oblates are experienceing the most need, and designated gifts can be applied to a specific area of need that you desire.
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated stock will help you avoid paying all capital gains in this gift – as long as you transfer the stock directly. Stock gifts can be designated toward a specific Oblate mission – or the donation can be used where it is most needed, maximizing the value of the gift. The value of a stock gift is based on the average selling price on the day the gift is received.
To ensure proper acknowledgment of your stock gift please do the following:
- Notify the Office of Charitable and Planned giving by calling 1-800-233-6264 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Share our account information with your stock broker or financial advisor to ensure your gift is transferred directly to the Missionary Oblates.
Account Name: USP Oblates Charitable Gifts

- Please instruct your broker to include your name, address and any designation for the gift when your stock transfer is made so we can personally thank you and send a tax receipt.
