All of us want to leave a legacy – a way our lives continue to do good things after our death. The values we live, the way we treat others, the standards we upload, the priorities for our time and energy weave a reality that becomes a part of our legacy.
Many of us would claim our families and our faith as our two greatest blessings. We provide for our families in countless ways. Often our last tangible gift to them comes from the arrangements we make in our will. We invite you to consider including St. John Fisher in your estate plan.
The St. John Fisher Legacy Society recognizes and acknowledges those who have included our parish and/or school in their estate plans or through a deferred gift. The Legacy Society was established in 2002 as part of the Faith in the Future educational endowment campaign.
There are many ways for you to leave a legacy. Here are some of the often used methods:
- Name SJF to receive a bequest through your will or living trust – state a fixed amount, percentage of your estate, or remainder of your estate.
- Designate SJF as beneficiary of your insurance policy or transfer ownership of a paid policy.
- Designate SJF as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or IRA.
- Create a trust that provides income to life for you and benefits SJF after your passing.
If you have already included St. John Fisher in your estate plans, please contact us so we can thank you and invite you to attend our annual reception for Legacy Society members.
