Leave a Legacy of Love for the Poor

Casa-2012--JeanThere are many ways to provide for the security of those you love and still create a lasting legacy. A will or a trust can provide you this opportunity.

Did you know 50% of Americans have no will or trust?

Without documentation in a will, trust or beneficiary designation, state law determines how your assets are divided with no provisions for your friends, favorite charities, church or the community. Click here to download the Sisters of Charity Legacy Brochure »

What will your legacy be?

Casa-Terese-TeachjngA legacy gift to the the Sisters of Charity will preserve your assets, provide tax benefits while you are alive, and allow the work you care about to continue.

Charitable Bequest– This is the most common type of deferred gift and is made through a will or trust.

Retirement Plan Assets– Naming the Sisters of Charity as the beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k), 403(b), Keogh, and other qualified plan can provide greater tax benefits to your heirs while maximizing the impact for the Sisters of Charity.

Life Insurance– The Sisters of Charity may be named as a beneficiary.

Publicly Traded Stock– May be transferred to the Sisters of Charity.

Bank Accounts or CDs– Most accounts will allow you to name the Sisters of Charity as “Payable on Death” beneficiary using a designation form.

The ministries sponsored by the Sister of Charity provide services of healthcare, housing, food, education, immigration services, advocacy and spiritual care. Our sisters and brothers in need, those whom society may forget, are greeted with compassion and a philosophy and values that ask, “what can I do for you?” We continue to sponsor programs of service done in our name, fostering the enduring spirit of charity of Vincent and Elizabeth. A deferred gift can continue this vital work and leave a lasting legacy.
