“Every good tree bears good fruit.”
By remembering St. Martha in your estate plans and becoming a member of the Legacy Society, you can do your part in handing down our beautiful parish to those that follow us and ensure our ability to serve future generations. Legacy gifts are not used for the current operating needs of the parish, but are set aside for the critical purpose of providing for the long-term financial health of St. Martha.
What Type of Legacy Gifts Can Be Given?
Name St. Martha in your will to receive cash, securities, or other property at the time of death.
Name St. Martha as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
Name St. Martha as the beneficiary of a 401k or IRA.
Name St. Martha as a Payable on Death (POD) beneficiary of a bank or brokerage account.
Charitable Gift Annuity
Donate cash or securities to St. Martha with guaranteed income payments made to the donor for life. This provides the donor with fixed payments for life, and immediate tax deduction, and favorable tax treatment of annuity payments.
Establish a trust that can be tailored to a specific donor’s requirements. Each form, such as Charitable Remainder Trusts and Charitable Lead Trusts has its own characteristics and advantages.
Parishioners that plan to leave a legacy gift will be inducted into the Legacy Society at Mass and their names will be engraved on the legacy tree. Legacy Society members will be invited to attend the annual appreciation event held every year in December, and upon joining our heavenly Father, members will be remembered each and every year at a special Mass.
