Mother Cabrini Shrine is a nonprofit, religious organization and we are self-supporting. Our annual budget is just over one million dollars and we rely on donations, retreat fees and sales from our gift shop. We are thankful for generous financial support from visitors, friends, businesses, the local community and all others who wish to promote the mission of Mother Cabrini Shrine and help us carry forth the great legacy of St. Frances Cabrini.
Gifts may be made for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the total estate or the residuum remaining after all debts, taxes, expenses and other bequests have been paid. Specific bequests of property such as real estate may also be made.
In exchange for a gift of cash or securities, the Cabrini Fund, Inc. will guarantee to pay you and/or another beneficiary a specified annuity. This is one of the oldest and simplest ways of making a gift, and in addition to the current charitable deduction, a portion of each annuity payment is income tax free.
What has become very popular in recent years is naming a charity as a beneficiary in one’s tax deferred retirement plan such as an IRA, Keough Plan, 401(k) plans and 403(b) plans. The distribution from any of these plans would take place after your death and may be very taxwise for your family.
Policies that are no longer needed for family protection or business purposes make excellent charitable gifts, regardless of whether or not all of the premiums have been paid. When ownership of the policy is irrevocably assigned to Cabrini Mission Foundation, the cash value of the policy is a tax deductible gift, as are all future premium payments. By establishing new life insurance policies, specifically for Cabrini Mission Foundation, a donor is able to make a substantial gift for a relatively modest annual outlay.
Charitable remainder unitrusts or annuity trusts enable you to make a significant gift to the Foundation while protecting or greatly improving your personal financial position. You and/or another named beneficiary will receive the income from the trust for your life, and you also receive an immediate income tax deduction. Tax savings are increased if appreciated securities are used to fund the trust because of capital gains tax considerations.
The Mother Cabrini Legacy Society has been created to unite the Cabrinian family together to accept Mother Cabrini’s challenge to “help the missions entrusted to the Institute of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart by offerings and service.” The Society specifically focuses on charitable and estate planning and the structuring of bequests and planned giving options. These gifts represent the desire of individuals to give back, to do more, and to make a difference in the world.

Mother Cabrini Shrine Gala 2021
Friday, September 17 at 5:30 p.m.
Pinnacle Club at the Grand Hyatt, Denver
Join us for a celebration of gratitude! Your generosity of 20 years of galas has funded Mother Cabrini Shrine and its ongoing operations. Over the past year, we have launched the Heart of Jesus Capital Campaign to expand and renew our precious Shrine. With the growing number of shrine guests, we need to restore, repair and enhance our facility for future growth and vitality. With that spirit in mind, all proceeds from the 2021 Gala will be a part of the Capital Campaign and go toward the expansion and renovation of the chapel.
We are eager to come back together for this annual event that will honor our resilient supporters, preview the excitement of the future and provide a unique and peaceful environment reminiscent of the powerful experience of a visit to the shrine. Space will be limited to ensure all safety protocols, so early registration is recommended. Not able to attend in-person this year but still want to celebrate? Silent Auction items and donation opportunities will be available in advance of the event, and a portion of the gala will be livestreamed to ensure you don’t miss out on this wonderful, annual occasion.
Please note that we are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our region and plan to follow any guidance from local health departments and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Continue to check our event site for more details leading up to the gala.
