Parish Planned Giving

“Tell them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, ready to share.” 1 Timothy 6:18-19

Most of the resources on this Planned Giving site are directed to individuals who are considering stewardship and legacy gifts through bequests, IRA distributions, securities donations, etc.
