Planned Giving is simply thinking ahead about your estate and charitable giving in a way that benefits you, your family, and the future of Catholic Charities. Legacy gifts do not have to be overly complicated. Please consult with your Trusted Estate Advisor for questions specific to your financial situation, and here are some ideas for you to consider:
Include language in your will or trust designating Catholic Charities as a beneficiary. This may be a dollar amount, a percentage of your estate/assets, or a specific asset.
IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER GIFT
If you are 70½ or older, rather than taking the full IRA Minimum Distribution (RMD), you can direct your IRA administrator to distribute a gift from your IRA to Catholic Charities.
Designate Catholic Charities as beneficiary of all or a portion of a life insurance policy.
Name Catholic Charities as a beneficiary of your retirement account.
REAL ESTATE & STOCKS
A gift of these assets to Catholic Charities are also considered charitable contributions.
MORE COMPLICATED GIFTS
With the support of a trusted financial advisor, other planned giving options include Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Family Charitable Lead Trusts, and Life Estate Reserved.
Legacy Gifts may be undesignated or designated by the donor.
Opportunities for Legacy Gifts include the following:
UNDESIGNATED GENERAL SUPPORT
Undesignated or unrestricted contributions provide us with the greatest flexibility to respond today and move toward the future. These funds provide Catholic Charities with the ability to dedicate resources to address the greatest needs of the organization and in the community.
Designate your legacy gift to one or more of Catholic Charities’ core programs.
- Family & Community Services
- Immigration Services
- Counseling Services
- Homeless Outreach Services
- New Programs
CATHOLIC CHARITIES’ GENERAL ENDOWMENT
Contributions provide general support for the mission and work of Catholic Charities in the two-county region. Endowed funds are gifts that just keep giving. The corpus of the total fund generates investment return. A limited percentage of the investment income can be used in any year to address the needs of the organization.
CATHOLIC CHARITIES’ ENDOWMENT SUB-FUNDS
Designate your legacy gift to one or more of Catholic Charities’ endowed sub-funds.
- Nicholas & Sophia Kosta Education Fund
- Children’s Fund
- Homeless Prevention Fund
- Family Strengthening Fund
- New Americans Fund
- Coachella Valley Fund
Also, donors have the option to name an existing fund or in consultation with Catholic Charities to establish and name a new fund with a minimum contribution of $25K.
