Planned Giving

Planning for the Future

In stewarding the gifts God has given us, it is important that we remember to plan for the future, working to ensure that our treasured ministries are sustained so that future generations may experience the blessings we have enjoyed.

Planned giving provides you with the opportunity to make a lasting impact on your favorite Catholic ministries, often at no cost to you during your lifetime. Because planned gifts are typically made from assets rather than income, you can make larger gifts in support of the Catholic organizations you love than you likely ever thought possible.

While some planned gifts can provide you with a lifetime income, others use estate and tax planning techniques to maximize your gift and/or minimize the impact on your estate.

Anyone, even those with a modest estate, can help secure our local Church’s future by establishing a planned gift. They are perfect for individuals and families of all ages and levels of income who wish to leave a sustaining gift to the Catholic organizations they hold dear. Strategic planned giving can allow anyone to create a lasting legacy for our local Church.
