For the last several months, we have encouraged planned giving in terms of gifts anyone can make – regardless of income or wealth. In December, the focus is on end-of-year giving, including #iGiveCatholic, making a gift in your will or via an IRA rollover to the parish endowment. Even if your parish is not participating in #iGiveCatholic this year, please consider using the “generic” version to encourage gifts to ministries that will benefit the entire archdiocese!
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! These graphics are also available on our website at https://www.cfnga.org/resources/parish-resources/.
Please consider using these notes in your parish bulletin to encourage planned gifts to your parish endowment fund, which will benefit your parish forever.
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.
