The city of Washington is in constant and urgent need of the spiritual and intellectual light that the CIC offers, and the world is in need of the holy work that can be done by a city living for Christ.

Operating three blocks from the White House in the heart of DC involves high operational costs. However, the costs are worth it in order to continue to serve DC’s men and women with the sacraments, sound faith formation, and our intellectual lecture series. The CIC is truly forming the future lay leaders of the Church in the United States.

Gifts of Stock

Transferring securities to the Catholic Information Center allows you to make a gift and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full, fair market value of the securities. You will pay no capital gains on your gift and neither will the CIC.

Planned Giving

Did you know you pay no estate taxes on contributions you make to the CIC through your will? A bequest to the CIC can be a gift of a specific dollar amount, publicly traded stocks or securities, or a percentage of your estate. You can also name the CIC as a contingent beneficiary if someone named in your will is no longer living at the time of your passing. A bequest to the Society is easy to arrange and can be made by including the following words in your will.

“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Catholic Information Center, 1501 K St, NW, Frnt 175, Washington, DC 20005, (insert amount of money, publicly traded stocks or securities, or percentage of estate) to be used for its educational purposes.”

A bequest to the CIC may be made in the form of cash or publicly traded stocks or securities. The CIC can also be named as the beneficiary of assets which often pass outside of a will, such as IRAs, pension plans, or life insurance.
