You may donate to the campaign by making Our Lady of the Lake Parish the owner and beneficiary of your insurance policy. If you are finished paying for the gifted policy, your gift is the replacement value or the cost basis of the policy, whichever is less. You may also donate a life insurance policy on which you are still making payments. Annual premiums are fully deductible as charitable gifts and often can be paid up after only five or seven years.
Planned giving is the process of carefully selecting the best method and asset for making a charitable gift. Such a gift can enable you to take full advantage of the tax laws to accomplish you financial and charitable goals. Planned gifts can be made through, among others:
We invite you to meet with us to explore the splendid opportunities available for planning a truly satisfying gift. We also would be grateful if you inform us of your plans for a legacy gift.
One great way to support our campaign, make some of the key gifts that we need, and pay tribute to someone that you care about is through a memorial or tribute gift. In fact, there are many memorial and tribute gift opportunities available that are part of our project and campaign that give donors the unique opportunity to designate their gift to a particular portion of the project and dedicate that area or item in honor or memory of those you choose. Let's say, for example, that you want to recognize in a special way your living or deceased parents, a child, sibling, relative or friend or maybe one of our helper priests or our current or former pastor. Simply pick a gift item from the list of opportunities available and pledge the qualifying gift amount required - either individually or by pooling your pledge with those of other family members or friends.
Then the parish will work with you to develop special lettering, a permanent plate or plaque that will let people know that a special gift has been made and to whom the gift is dedicated.
This is a great way to actually make two gifts - one to the parish and one to those who you care about most.
