Turn Today’s Gift into a Gift for Tomorrow

When people think about giving to a charitable institution like the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge, cash seems like the easiest way to give. Simply write a check, and your generosity helps address our most immediate needs. But, what about the long-term needs of those we serve? What about them?

Regardless of the season or the time of year, there is always a demand for the important work we do. To help, please consider turning the gift you make today into a gift for tomorrow by making a planned gift to the Diocese of Baton Rouge.

A planned gift is a commitment to benefit countless individuals for years to come. These types of gifts often involve a little more thought, but you can align them with your overall financial and estate planning goals. And the best part? Your gift is generally deferred until after your lifetime; that way, your current income isn’t affected. Also, with many planned gifts, you can change your mind at any time.

No matter which gift type you choose, you can feel confident knowing that your contribution will allow us to carry out our mission well into the future. God’s blessing, your planning, and your partnership will make all the difference.
