GIVING

How the Foundation Works for You…

The Foundation goal is simple: to create a $1 million endowment, the proceeds of which will be used exclusively to benefit the parish and its people.

The Foundation’s board of directors intends to keep endowment fund principal intact and to use the income from the investment of the principal to accomplish parish goals. There are estate tax advantages when you participate in the foundation endowment program, and most contributions are tax-deductible. Finally, because the Foundation’s activities are tax-free, ALL proceeds will go directly to support parish programs.

Estate Planning is the Key…

When you identify the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church Foundation, Inc., as an estate beneficiary, your generosity becomes a lasting testimony to your faith and commitment. Bequest methods of all kinds can be used, including:

  • Trusts
  • Wills
  • Insurance Policies
  • Contributions of Cash and Other Assets

Attorneys and financial managers throughout the area are familiar with the Foundation and how it works. They can help you develop an estate plan that includes the Foundation and, thereby, St. John’s.

If you or members of your family are ready to explore giving to St. John’s Foundation as a lasting testimony of your faith, please, feel free to contact any of the Foundation’s board members to start this important conversation.
