A Gift that Costs You Nothing During Your Lifetime
You can maintain control of your assets during your lifetime and leave a gift at the end of your life to the endowment fund that benefits your favorite Catholic organization. You may also choose to start your own endowment fund with a gift from your estate.
Give Later if You…
- Want to create your legacy of giving
- Keep control of your assets while living
- Give a significant gift that will have a lasting impact on the Catholic organizations you treasure
- Help your heirs by minimizing their tax burden after your life
How to Give Later
Bequests allow you to make an extraordinary impact on the Catholic organizations you wish to support without affecting your current lifestyle.
Beneficiary designations, which may offer significant tax advantages and cost you nothing during your lifetime, do not require a lawyer and are among the simplest ways to provide for the future of your favorite Catholic ministries.
When making a bequest or beneficiary designation, please use the following language:
Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri (EIN 46-3309222), for the benefit of <<Name of Fund>>.
The Roman Catholic Foundation builds endowed funds that will support Catholic parishes, schools and ministries throughout the Archdiocese of St. Louis for generations to come.
