“For we brought nothing into the world,
just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it.”
1 Timothy 6:7
How will your treasure be divided when you travel home to meet Our Father? Have you considered returning a portion of your estate to the One from whom it came?
“Planned Giving” refers to making a gift now, while retaining an interest in the donated property, or for arranging for a gift that the charity will receive in the future or at the donor’s death. This type of tax-wise giving, or charitable estate planning may take several forms. Among the most common are:
- Memorial Donations intended to honor someone.
- Bequest Simply leaving certain assets, such as cash, property, or
stock to the parish after your passing.
- Life Insurance By designating St. Anthony Parish as the beneficiary of a
life insurance policy you can make a significant gift for a
- Charitable Gift Annuity
This is an arrangement under which you make a contribution
to the parish and receive, in return, guaranteed annuity
payments for life. It is a way of giving that allows you to make
a significant gift that benefits you now and the parish later.
