Sister Kavanaugh is a native Affinity card keeps income coming in at schools By PAUL R. LEINGANG Message editor Another $4,959 went into the in- come side of the books at Catholic schools in the Diocese of Evansville, fom affinity credit card usage in July. That amount brings the total income from the 'Tradition" card to $30,659 for the year. Schools use the money in a variety of ways, from ordinary operations to special purchases of computer equipment. According to figures provided by the Office of Stewardship and De- velopment, schools in the Evans- ville West Deanery shared the largest portion of the July total, $1,279. Schools in the Evansville East Deanery had nearly that amount of income, $1,279. Money is generated for the schools through the izse of the Tradition affinity card, estab- lished by Citizens National Bank. Schools receive one-half of one percent of a purchase which is charged to the card. IOLIC PILGRIM I In July, 1,313 card holders in the Evansville West Deanery charged a total of $255,880. During July, 1,345 card hold- ers in the Evansville East Dean- ery charged a total of $251,266. Income amounts for a partic.u- lar school depend in part on how many other schools there are in the deanery and the number of students in each school. Card holders are tracked by ZIP codes, to determine which deanery should get the income from their charged amounts. Income for schools in other deaneries from July charges, and the number of cardholders, are as follows: Jasper Deanery, 858 card- holders, $618. Newburgh Deanery, 496 card- holders, $424. Princeton Deanery, 467 card- holders, $392. Vincennes Deanery, 361 cardholders, $330. Washington Deanery, 488 card holders, $320. Because of a current IRS opinion that the money from an affinity card is taxable as "un- related business income," a por- tion of the income is withheld for tax purposes. 5TH ANNUAL MARIAN CONFERENCE September 21 - 22, 1996 ~ Louisville Memorial Auditorium Louisville, Kentucky SPECIAL GUEST IVAN DRAGICEVIC, visionary from Medjugorje Fr.
