Legacy Gifts

Legacy gifts are different than weekly donations.  A legacy gift is a gift to the Parish that actualizes when you pass away. The gift can be anything from a piece of property, cash, or a percentage of your estate.


Legacy gifts play a key role in supporting the initiatives of the Parish for years to come. While donations usually are the answer to the question, "How can I help today?", legacy gifts are the answer to, "How can I help tomorrow?" and "How would I like to be remembered?"

What Are the Benefits of Leaving Legacy Gifts?

Legacy giving is a way to leave a lasting legacy of generosity. It makes causes that you care about an important part of your life story. 

People often worry that leaving a legacy gift means that there will be less to give to their loved ones. The truth is, you can make a legacy gift without taking away from the gifts left to your family and friends.


Benefits of leaving a legacy gift include:

-Leaving a larger legacy. Legacy giving doesn't affect your income today. This allows you to leave a more substantial gift than otherwise may be possible in your lifetime.

-Inspiring others. Your gift might also cause others to think about their own philanthropic goals. Maybe you'll inspire somebody to give back as well!

Please contact Father Vidal regarding your legacy gift by calling the parish office at: 239-261-5555.
