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.

In this section we provide resources for parishes, schools, ministries, and other groups to encourage planned giving by their members. You can find these resources by following the links below.
