Parish Legacy Giving

Are you ready to strengthen your parish for the future – and help parishioners reflect on how they can use the gifts given to them by God for the benefit of loved ones and the parish? By educating, informing and creating awareness about estate planning and legacy giving, you will be offering parishioners the chance to name the parish as a beneficiary of their will, trust, retirement account or life insurance policy – and express their gratitude to God.


Resources available include:

  • A polished legacy giving page for your website
  • Customized “Leave a Legacy” brochures and posters
  • Regular bulletin announcements
  • Consistent social media posts
  • Template request letter from your pastor 
  • Turn-key informational and inspirational events
  • Support creating your own Parish Legacy Society
  • Examples of motivating parishioner testimonials
  • CCF staff support to meet with your parishioners considering a legacy gift

Benefits of a Legacy Giving Program

  • Helps pastor and parish leadership understand the importance of developing and continuing a legacy giving program
  • Provides an opportunity for parishioners to express their spirituality, values and pass on the faith for future generations
  • Creates greater partnership with parishioners
  • Contributes to the future financial needs of the Church

Contact Jackie Brauser at or 216-696-6525 x1640 for information on how to get started at your parish, including how to access Parish Legacy Giving Resources. We are happy to meet with parish leadership!”
