PLANNED GIVING/BEQUEST

Leaving a legacy for future generations is an amazing part of who we are as human beings. We do this through so many ways during the course of our lifetimes with sharing ourselves through family, community, and work. Part of leaving a legacy for future generations is to plan now how you wish to do this. You have many options available to help provide for the future, by maximizing various aspects of your current life’s successes.

Benefits of a Planned Gift

  1. Leaves a lasting legacy
  2. Can potentially benefit your estate by minimizing the tax ramifications
  3. Allows you, the donor, to make an impactful gift that lasts into the future
  4. No amount is too large, nor too small.

A bequest can be made in several ways:

  • You can gift a specific dollar amount or asset.
  • You can gift a percentage of your estate.
  • You can gift from the balance or residue of your estate.
  • You can make a beneficiary designation of certain assets.
  • If you already have a will, you can amend it with a simple codicil - an addendum that can change a specific part of the will without necessarily re-writing the entire document.

There are many financial assets you might currently own that could be utilized as part of your planned giving opportunity. The three that are most commonly recognized as legacy gifts are real estate, retirement accounts and life insurance.



Regardless of whatever means you wish to utilize as part of your planned giving strategy, please know that your gift will be stewarded faithfully to benefit those in our community living in poverty.


We sincerely thank you for supporting Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada’s life-saving work. If you have questions, please call (775) 322-7073, ex. 220.
