Estate & Planned Giving

When considering gifts to a charity in your will or trust, please remember your church!

Gifts to Saint Maria Goretti Church will provide a financial benefit to your church and will leave a legacy of your faith and your commitment. Many options can offer significant tax benefits. Gifts can be made through your will or trust to the church in a variety of ways including:

  • A specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.
  • A particular asset, such as real estate or other valuables.
  • Name the church as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.
  • Charitable Rollover - individuals who are 70-1/2 or older can roll over up to $100,000 from an individual retirement account (IRA) directly to a qualifying charity without recognizing the assets transferred to the qualifying charity as income.
