Suppport and Contribution FAQs

Are the Sisters of St. Joseph a charitable organization? Are my donations tax deductible?

The Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine (SSJ) is exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. SSJ’s Federal Tax ID # is 59-6016039. Donors may deduct contributions to the Sisters as provided by the Code. We are recognized by the IRS through a group exemption granted to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB); therefore, we do not receive an IRS individual exempt letter. We are listed in the current issue of the Official Catholic Directory. We are not listed separately in the IRS Publication 78 or the EO Business Master File.
