Ensure the Future of St. Joseph through Legacy Giving

A legacy gift can take many forms and can be of great benefit in helping fulfill your personal financial objectives. We hope that you will give prayerful consideration to helping us shape the parish that our children, grandchildren, and future generations will experience.

Types of Giving & Gifts

  • Gift from a Will or Living Trust: A gift from a will or living trust are two of the most common ways to create a legacy gift for the benefit of the parish. A bequest may include cash, specific property, or a share of the estate.
  • Gifts of Stock and Appreciated Assets: Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual funds directly to St. Joseph Catholic Church can significantly increase your tax deduction and the amount of income our parish receives.
  • Gifts from your Retirement Plan: Gifts of retirement assets are another simple way to leave a gift by naming St. Joseph Catholic Church as beneficiary of a percentage or the full amount of your Individual Retirement Account, 401k or other qualified retirement plan.
  • Gifts of Life Insurance: There are many ways in which life insurance policies can be used to make a contribution, all of which provide tax deductions and the opportunity to make a more substantial gift than otherwise possible. It is easy to name St. Joseph Catholic Church as the beneficiary of a policy or transfer ownership of a paid-up policy to our parish.
  • Gifts of Real Estate: St. Joseph Catholic Church may be named as beneficiary or co-beneficiary to almost any type of personal property or real estate.
  • Estate Planning
