Planned Giving

Please remember us in your estate planning...
a simple and powerful way to give!

Your hard-earned wealth may be large or small, or somewhere in between. No matter the size, when you make a wise plan to put your resources to work through Catholic Charities, you are committing a beautiful act of kindness that will live on for many years to come.

These gifts help us support struggling families while significantly strengthening the financial foundation of the Agency. Generous endowments ensure a stronger, more self-sustaining community for future generations.

You can plan a gift in any of the following ways:

Gift in a Will or Living Trust
Securities and Mutual Funds as Donations
Life Insurance
IRA or Other Retirement Plan
Real Estate
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Endowed Gifts
Charitable Gift Annuities
Charitable Remainder Trust
Charitable Lead Trust
Donor Advised Funds

It is important that you work closely with your tax and legal advisors to implement the plan that is right for you and your family.

If you’re interested in exploring any of these options further and finding out more about how they can benefit Catholic Charities, please call Ashlee Wolf at (559) 237-0851 Ext. 1105 or
