For the next several months, we are encouraging planned giving in terms of gifts anyone can make – regardless of income or wealth. In August, the focus is on making a gift of an IRA Rollover to the parish endowment fund if your parishioners are 70 ½ or over. An IRA rollover can benefit your parishioners as well as the parish, and they may save on taxes when they make the gift.
Some parishes have indicated that they would prefer a simple business card size graphic that they can just place in their bulletin. We are providing both formats to fit your parish’s needs! Bulletin graphics are available below.
We would like to work with you to increase your parish endowment fund, and we would like to make it as easy as possible to do so. These bulletin notes are just one way to communicate planned giving to your parishioners.
