Leaving a legacy through planned giving
Did you know there are creative ways to support Holy Cross and St. Katharine
Drexel in addition to your generous weekly donations?
Giving through your estate or retirement plan is a wonderful way to support the
Church with a significant gift you might not be able to make with your income
alone. Your gift becomes a legacy of support that builds out long-term financial
strength. You can help transform lives by bringing faith, hope, and love to God's
people for generations to come.
Financial advisors call these creative techniques "planned gifts." With thoughtful
planning, you create win-win solutions for you and the parish. For example:
Name Us in Your Will
By giving to the church upon your death in your will, you can make a gift that
costs you nothing during your lifetime and can make a world of difference for the
Church. Contact the parish office (920-766-1445) for details.
