ESTABLISH A LASTING LEGACY
Planned Giving: Bequests, Retirement Plans, Life Insurance Benefactor, or Charitable Gift Annuity
Planned giving allows you to make advance decisions about how you would like certain assets to be distributed after you’ve passed away, and to leave behind a legacy of your care and compassion.
Example of establishing a lasting legacy of service to others:
A bequest is a great and powerful way to express gratitude to God for a lifetime of blessings.
Your gift establishes a lasting legacy of service to others by helping our parish family to continue our mission which is
"Love God, Love Your Neighbor, Make Disciples."
The following is possible wording for including a bequest in your last will:
"I bequeath the sum of $_____ or ____% of the residue of my estate to the Church of Saint Patrick,
