With a gift to All Souls, you can help people experience Jesus Christ and extend the love of the parish through the city and the world.
Some recent surveys have suggested that almost 89% of American households contribute to charity, yet only about 8% make a charitable bequest. Perhaps the primary reason more people do not make bequests has to do with planning.
Help All Souls . . .
A good estate plan, including a well-designed last will and testament, will preserve assets for designated loved ones, will protect your estate from unnecessary taxes, and can create a legacy that survives well beyond your lifetime.
. . . while helping those you love.
Sometimes we tend to have an “all or nothing” attitude about estate planning – we plan on leaving everything to an heir or everything to a charity. Good financial planning can do both. You can arrange to help those you love while also helping All Souls for years to come.
What builds a church?
Faithful people, faithful discipleship, and faithful giving.
The faith and forethought of many have made it possible for us to worship in this place.
One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require, even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit his temple.” – Psalm 27
Have Faith in the Future
Remember All Souls in your will
More than half of all Americans die without a will. If you don’t make decisions about how your money and assets will be divided when you die, the government (through estate taxes and other taxes) will be happy to decide for you. You can better protect your assets for your loved ones and help All Souls by taking the time to make a will.
A bequest in a will is the simplest and most common planned gift. It can be an outright monetary bequest, a percentage of your estate, a percentage of the “rest, reside and remainder” of your estate after a number of other bequests have been fulfilled, or a specific asset such as personal or real property.
