Welcome! Planned gifts can benefit the Diocese while helping you to save taxes, increase your income and pass more on to your heirs.

For example, did you know that...

  • You can receive income for life in exchange for a gift?
  • Giving appreciated property, like stocks or real estate, costs less than giving the equivalent amount in cash?
  • Some assets can benefit you more if you give them away?
  • Some gifts cost nothing now, but leave a legacy later?
  • Some gifts allow you to pass more on to your heirs and save taxes?

If you are just beginning to explore your options, try our easy-to-use, interactive Legacy Planner®. With a few clicks you can choose the best gift plans for your individual needs and learn more about their benefits.
