Help Create a Legacy
Since the establishment of the Catholic Foundation in 1964, many donors have created meaningful legacies. Each legacy gift makes an enormous impact on the charitable organization that receives the support.
Please consider planning now to establish a legacy gift in support of causes important to you. We will work with you to ensure your gift reflects your intentions and fulfills your commitment to the future.
One Shining Example: The Molly McLennan Fund
Molly McLennan was a long time parishioner of St. Ignatius Parish. She made arrangements in her will for a gift “in kind” of appreciated securities through the Catholic Foundation to financially support the parish in perpetuity. This gift also provided for substantial tax savings for her estate because the securities had accumulated significant capital gains that would have been otherwise taxable.
Started in 2016, the McLennan Fund included $466,552 to be held in perpetuity and had generated over $57,000 in grants for St. Ignatius parish. This was a generous gift that proved beneficial for both her estate and her former parish.
