Facilitates the donations of estates and other gifts designated in wills, living trusts, etc.

Additional Information

Planned Giving covers ways an individual can give to a charity while, in many cases, avoiding taxes, such as: Designated Beneficiary Accounts, Wills, Living Trusts, Stocks, Life Insurance, Mutual Funds, Endowments, and Real Estate. Parishioners who have provided for STM in their estate planning become part of our Towers of Faith program. The members of this group share a common bond of generosity and visionary leadership which nourishes the ongoing success of St. Thomas More.

Time Requirements

Varies based on the need; occurs during both daytime and evening hours.
