Our Lady of Lourdes, Ada
Using the Gifts Received from God
In pursuing the parish vision and mission, we strive to be true disciples of Christ by enhancing our spiritual development and being active in parish life. God has given us many blessings during our lives and we ask that you make use of these blessings by making a legacy or planned gift to support the future of Our Lady of Lourdes and your Catholic faith.
By definition, planned giving is a major gift that comes from the donor’s financial or estate planning. Gifts could come from appreciated securities or stock, real estate, a retirement plan or even cash – but they are generally made from outside of one’s discretionary income. Some donors are in a position to make the gift (or multiple gifts) during their lifetime, but many make the gift as a bequest in their will. Planned gifts can offer many benefits to the donor, including tax benefits or the potential for returned income.
Often times, a planned gift is put in an endowment fund, which allows the one-time gift to grow and provides a permanent source of funds for the intended beneficiary. We ask you to consider making a contribution to these existing funds or, if you’re able, consider opening your own endowment fund with Our Lady of Lourdes as the beneficiary.
