A “Planned Gift” is a charitable gift requiring thought and planning that may affect your current financial and/or future resources. Planned Gifts offer various strategies that can help you to save on taxes or increase your income. They offer opportunities to provide for yourself and /or your family while allowing you to support the mission and programs of an organization that embodies your values and represents what’s most important to you, now and in the future.

Have you felt that you would like to support the present and future work and programs of Catholic Charities and that you would be ready to do this if you knew a way to do so? Have you been thinking about leaving a legacy that will convey your most important values? There ARE many creative ways to support our mission and programs AND earn income for yourself or your loved ones.  We describe many of them on our easy to understand site below.
