Giving is a way to faithfully steward what God has given to us.

Ways to Give

When you give to St. James, you’re supporting the life and mission of our parish as we seek to share the love of Christ with our community.


Giving online is a secure, easy way to simplify your contributions. St. James uses Faith Direct, an online giving platform that allows you to set up one-time or recurring financial gifts.

Give Online

In Person

Drop off your gift in person at Mass or our parish office.

Tuition Assistance

Many students at St. James School rely on scholarships to receive a private school education. By supporting our Tuition Assistance program, you can help students receive a superior education and build a firm foundation for their future. To donate to our Tuition Assistance program online, select a recurring or one-time gift and select the SJS Family & School Association Annual Fund option.

Give Online

This is different from the Invest In Kids Scholarship Tax Credit Program. For more information about Illinois tax credit scholarships and how to give, visit the Archdiocese of Chicago website.

Legacy Giving

Want to give a gift that lasts beyond your own lifetime? With planned legacy giving, you can demonstrate faithful generosity, support our ministries, and leave a lasting impact on our parish.

To learn more about legacy giving options and how to designate a future gift to St. James Parish or School, contact Dcn. Matt Hahn.
