For the next several months, we are encouraging planned giving in terms of gifts anyone can make – regardless of income or wealth. In September, the focus is on making a gift of real estate or “remainders of estates” – what is left over from the home when a family member dies (or moves to assisted living) after the family has distributed what they want.
Please consider using these notes in your parish bulletin to encourage planned gifts to your parish endowment fund, which will benefit your parish forever. Graphic versions of these are also available below. 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!
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.
