Giving Societies

Our community supports thousands of individuals, businesses and organizations through committed generosity.

Your Gifts Make the Difference

We are a non-profit organization committed to Ascension Sacred Heart’s faith-based ministry of serving all people in need throughout Northwest Florida.

We work to encourage volunteer participation and financial contributions that help fulfill this charitable need and rely on compassionate people like you to give from the heart. Throughout the year there are many opportunities to give through our current Campaigns and Funds. Gifts through donations, sponsorships and planned giving are always appreciated. Please consider a tax-deductible gift today.


Gifts of stock can support our mission and provide highly effective tax-savings. When you donate appreciated securities that you have held for more than a year, there is no capital gains tax to pay; you may take a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the donation. However, if the stock has lost value, your tax advantage lies in selling it and taking the tax loss, then generating your charitable deduction by donating the cash proceeds to the Foundation. Gifts of bonds also qualify for the deduction. Before donating securities, speak with your financial advisor to determine the course of action that best suits your financial circumstances.

For questions about securities, please contact the Foundation

Matching Gifts

Hundreds of companies offer matching gift programs to charitable organizations like Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation. These companies may match donations made by current employees, employees' spouses, or retired employees.

When Gifts Count

No matter the gift, please know that your donation matters and affects real lives.

We find that donors sometimes have questions about the timing of contributions to ensure they receive a charitable tax deduction in a particular year. Put simply, your gift is credited on the date it is delivered to Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation; or, in the case of a stock donation, the day it is received in our account. If the end of the year is approaching, and you would like your contribution to be credited to the current year, the timing of your gift is particularly important. Per IRS guidelines, all donations must be postmarked by December 31 of the current year to qualify as a charitable contribution for that year. Get in touch with our Foundation team to see how your gift can make a difference.
