Planned Giving

When you think of leaving your philanthropic legacy, you search for a cause that is dear to your heart, where you know you can truly make a difference and where your "ultimate gift" will be maintained and multiplied through sound management practices.

There are many details to be considered with a charitable planned gift, so please consult your own attorney and tax advisor before you decide the method of giving for your situation.

Wills and Bequests

Bequests under wills may reduce estate taxes.

Life Estate Agreements

A personal residence or farm may be given as a charitable gift, with the donor retaining the right to use the property for life.

Gifts of Life Insurance

St. Monica Catholic Church can be designated as the irrevocable beneficiary and owner of an insurance policy.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

The use of charitable remainder trusts (CRTs) has become an increasingly popular way to make a generous charitable contribution, receive tax savings, and generate income for you and your family.

Please call the Parish Office at 214-358-1453 for more specific information on designating St. Monica Catholic Church for living gifts, wills, or trusts.
