We encourage you to prayerfully consider a legacy gift to Assumption Catholic Church and School. Legacy gifts help sustain our parish allowing both us and future generations to enjoy and benefit from the church and its programs and ministries, just as we have benefited from the gifts of those who came before us.
There are many legacy gift opportunities including:
- Charitable Gift Annuities
- Charitable Remainder Trusts
- Charitable Lead Trusts
- IRA or Retirement Account Beneficiary Designation
- Life Insurance—both now or later
Our parish is pleased to offer you FreeWill.com, a free and secure online resource to help you create a legal will or a plan to take to an attorney. Whether you are just beginning to plan for your family or considering a future gift to our parish from your will, or as a beneficiary of a retirement account or life insurance policy, we hope you will find this tool helpful.
Legacy gifts are a supplemental source of revenue to the parish. Our normal offertory generally funds the operating expenses of the parish along with the upkeep and maintenance of our buildings. But we also support over 30 programs and ministries devoted to faith formation, hospitality, outreach, and administration. Legacy gifts are a valuable resource to help the parish maintain and grow these programs and ministries, as well as create sustainable sources of income through endowments.
Over the years, Assumption Catholic Church and School has received several generous legacy gifts. These gifts have been of incredible value to the parish. We can’t thank those donors enough!
The Catholic Foundation is also a resource for you in the planning process. Please contact Kelly C. Wood at (904) 262-3200 ext. 139 to request a free printed copy of our Estate Planning Guide or to request a confidential conversation about ways you can remember our parish in your estate plan and the specific bequest language you will need to include. The foundation can also help our parishioners who want to establish Donor Advised Funds, Charitable Gift Annuities and permanent endowment funds that benefit our parish or other ministries of the Diocese of St. Augustine, forever.
If you have decided to include our parish as part of your estate plans, thank you!
Please consider letting the parish know of your plans. Father Jason would be grateful for the opportunity to personally thank you.
