Planned Giving

Planning Ahead

A meaningful way to support Catholic Central is to include it when making your financial plans. Some gifts can be of immediate benefit to CCHS; others can be ongoing or deferred. By including Catholic Central in your philanthropic plans, you may receive tax benefits and a peace of mind to leaving an important legacy. There are variety of giving options:

  • Outright Gift of Cash, Securities, Real Estate
    Outright gifts can include cash, appreciated stock or real estate, or tangible property/equipment.
  • Bequest
    In writing your will or living trust, you can specify Catholic Central as sole or partial beneficiary of your estate. 
  • Trusts
    A Trust vehicle can be established to transfer cash, securities, and/or property and can be established to provide an income stream to you or your beneficiaries.
  • Life Insurance
    Catholic Central can be named as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy.
  • Tribute or Memorial Gift
    A gift to Catholic Central may be given in honor of a living person, to memorialize someone who is deceased, or to commemorate a significant event. Tribute and memorial gifts are an excellent way to honor and perpetuate the ideals of the named person or event. Families of those honored or memorialized will be notified of the donor’s gift.
Donors should consult their financial advisor to determine the most suitable planned giving opportunity.
