Planned giving

Planned giving is an option which provides supporters with creative and flexible strategies for estate and charitable giving. Donors can choose from several strategies that provide them with income, reduce tax liability, and ultimately help Catholic Charities serve our community.

Each donor’s situation is unique, and one benefit of planned giving is the ability to structure a gift to meet the donor’s goals and objectives, often enabling a donor to make a gift they may have thought was beyond their means.

We invite you to consider Catholic Charities in your charitable planning process and to help us fulfill our mission. We welcome the opportunity to speak with potential donors without any obligation. Ultimately, we would like to work with you to facilitate giving that meets your personal and financial goals while maximizing the impact of gifts to sustain Catholic Charities for generations to come. All contacts and discussions are absolutely confidential and without cost or obligation of any kind.

Please fill out and submit our Legacy Form or contact Chuck Hayes, Chief Development Officer, at (716) 218-1450 ext. 2095, or with any questions regarding planned giving.
