Legacy Giving

Ensure the Future of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart through Legacy Giving

A legacy gift can take many forms and can be of great benefit in helping fulfill your personal financial objectives.  We hope that you will give prayerful consideration to helping us shape the parish that our children, grandchildren, and future generations will experience.

Types of Giving & Gifts

Gift from a Will or Living Trust

A gift from a will or living trust are two of the most common ways to create a legacy gift for the benefit of the parish.  A bequest may include cash, specific property, or a share of the estate.

Gifts of Stock and Appreciated Assets

Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual funds directly to the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart can significantly increase your tax deduction and the amount of income our parish receives.

Gifts from your Retirement Plan

Gifts of retirement assets are another simple way to leave a gift by naming Cathedral of the Sacred Heart as beneficiary of a percentage or the full amount of your Individual Retirement Account, 401k or other qualified retirement plan.

Gifts of Life Insurance

There are many ways in which life insurance policies can be used to make a contribution, all of which provide tax deductions and the opportunity to make a more substantial gift than otherwise possible.  It is easy to name Cathedral of the Sacred Heart as the beneficiary of a policy or transfer ownership of a paid-up policy to our parish.
