Supporting Catholic Causes in Estate Planning.

Think of the biggest decisions you’ve made in your life: moving to a new town, making a major purchase, changing jobs, retiring. How many of those decisions did you make only after consulting loved ones, experts or both? Probably most or all of them. Choosing to include a charitable gift supporting Catholic Causes in your estate plan is no exception. For peace of mind, it helps to talk to these critical “team members” as part of the process.

Your Loved Ones

You likely have family members and/or close friends whose input you value. And you may want to provide for them after your lifetime. Balancing that with a desire to help our mission in the future is easier than you may think, thanks to percentage giving.
