Fast Facts About Planned Giving

If you hear “planned giving” and think it’s only for people older or wealthier than you—or that it’s just too confusing—you’re not alone. However, planned giving is for people of all ages and any economic status, and it doesn’t have to be difficult.

Some people simply misunderstand what planned giving is all about. Check out these common planned giving misconceptions and get the answers you need.

Here’s what others mistakenly believe:

1. Planned gifts are complicated and confusing. Not so.
They don’t have to be. There are many types of planned gifts. Like planning a gift within your will or through a living trust, most options are simple and affordable. You just need to find the one that best meets your needs. We can help you find the best gift for you, just contact Tammy V. Abshire, CFRE.

2. Planned gifts are only for the wealthy. That’s absolutely not true.
Anyone can make a planned gift—no matter if your estate is worth $100 or one million dollars. Plus, gifts of all sizes make a difference at the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge. In fact, when you make a planned gift, you’re likely able to make a bigger impact than you think is possible.

3. Wills are only for older adults. Nope. Not at all.
Having a plan for the future is important—no matter your age. An estate plan makes your wishes known and provides your loved ones with peace of mind.
