Welcome to The Pillars Legacy Society, the planned giving program of St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School! We are thrilled to provide you with information and resources on how you can make a lasting impact on our school and its future.
Planned giving offers a unique opportunity for alumni, parents, friends, and supporters of St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School to contribute to our mission in a meaningful and enduring way. By incorporating planned giving into your estate plans, you can leave a legacy that will support our school's future generations for years to come.
There are various ways to engage in planned giving, depending on your individual circumstances and philanthropic goals. Here are a few options to consider:
1. Bequests: Including a bequest provision in your will or living trust allows you to designate a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School. This straightforward method ensures your support for our school continues beyond your lifetime.
2. Charitable Gift Annuities: By establishing a charitable gift annuity, you can make a gift of cash, stock, or bonds to our school while receiving fixed payments for life. This arrangement provides you with a reliable income stream and significant tax benefits.
3. Retirement Plan Assets: Naming St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School, as a beneficiary of your retirement plan (e.g., IRA, 401(k)) is a tax-efficient way to support our mission. It allows you to reduce estate taxes while preserving more assets for your loved ones.
4. Life Insurance Policies: Designating our school as a beneficiary or owner of a life insurance policy enables you to make a substantial future gift with relatively low-cost premiums. It's a simple yet impactful way to support our student's education.
