Please see the attached bulletin notes for the month of March in both English and Spanish that focus on planned giving with an emphasis on wills. According to a survey from Caring.com, 60% of American adults do not have a will.
The Bulletin Notes for March focus on how your parishioners can leave parish endowment funds in their will or estate plans, and how the Catholic Foundation can make it easy with our Wills Guides and online tools. The notes include:
• Ease of planning your will online
• Leaving a legacy to the parish without affecting cash flow
• Providing for your family and the parish
• Tax benefits of giving of securities
• Gifts to the parish endowment fund
Please include these notes in your parish bulletin to encourage more planned giving at your parish. We would like to work with you to increase your parish endowment fund, and make it as easy as possible to do so. These bulletin notes are just one way to communicate planned giving to your parishioners.
If you have any questions regarding the notes, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about your parish endowment fund or planned giving, please contact Juliet Greco at email@example.com or 404-497-9440.
