Have you considered leaving a lasting legacy that will benefit the parish forever? Parishioners can make planned gifts to the parish endowment fund which will provide funding for our parish ministries long after we are gone.
This is a wonderful thing that you can do for your parish!
A planned gift is a gift that requires forethought, as it comes from assets or from a will or estate plan. Many find that making a gift in their will (also called a bequest) is the easiest way to support the future of the church for generations to come. The goal of planned giving is to help you plan your estate and charitable giving in a way that benefits you, your family, and the causes you care most about.
Endowment funds help ensure the future of our parish and sustain our mission now and forever. A gift to an endowment fund is never spent. Instead, the gifts are protected by law, professionally invested, and grow over time.
As the value of the endowment fund grows, our parish receives an annual distribution grant that comes from the earnings of the fund. The distribution grant is used to support the needs of St. James the Apostle.
