Sometimes our wisest investments are the ones we give away...

Many of us have watched with great satisfaction our stock portfolio grow with leaps and bounds again this year. Unfortunately, our taxes have grown proportionally. By making a gift of appreciated stock to St. James Cathedral before December 31st, you can avoid the capital gains taxes plus benefit by taking the fair market value of the gifted stock as a charitable deduction on your 2000 taxes.

Golf tournament success

The Fourth Annual Raymond G. Hunthausen Golf Tournament netted a record $48,000 when over 100 golfers gathered for the event at the Plateau Golf Club on August 21, 2000. Players included Archbishop Alex J. Brunett and Archbishop Hunthausen, local sports celebrities, parishioners and friends of the Cathedral. All income from the event is used to fund Cathedral programs serving the homeless, the elderly and our parish youth.
