The bulletin notes for July focus on charitable gift annuities, a way that parishioners can receive payments during their lifetime and leave money to benefit the parish endowment forever.
We have also included a note for the Deo Gratias Society Mass and Celebration, taking place on Saturday, September 18. The Deo Gratias Society includes anyone who has named a parish, Catholic school or Catholic ministry in his/her will or estate plan. Please help us celebrate these individuals for their commitment to the Catholic community.
Please consider using these notes in your bulletin to encourage planned gifts to your parish endowment fund, which will benefit your parish forever.
Graphic versions of these bulletin notes are available on our website at cfnga.org/resources/parish-resources. You can also share these graphics on social media.
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. If you have any questions, please contact me, or Juliet Greco. God bless!
Yours in Christ,
Director, Major and Planned Giving email@example.com
