3 Ways to Ensure Family Comes First

 

Naming the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge as a beneficiary in your will is a simple way to enable the future of our important work. But maybe you’ve hesitated because you’re unsure about how much to give.

Because life is unpredictable, and the value of your assets is likely to rise and fall, you don’t want to risk that someday your charitable gift could outweigh the well-being of your family. Fortunately, there’s a solution.

 

Percentage Giving

Instead of a fixed amount, consider giving a percentage of either your estate or specific assets. That way, gifts to loved ones and to organizations such as the Diocese of Baton Rouge remain proportional—no matter how your estate fluctuates.

Here are 3 simple ways to put family first while supporting those we serve:

1. Gift a percentage of your estate to the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge in your will.

2. Leave the Diocese of Baton Rouge a percentage of your residual estate (the portion of your estate that remains after all gifts have been made and all claims of the estate are satisfied).

3. Name the Diocese of Baton Rouge as a beneficiary of a percentage of your life insurance policy or retirement account.

 

Be sure to let us know that you have named us as a beneficiary so we can contact your administrator at the appropriate time and put your gift to work exactly as you intend.

 

Your Gift Matters

Giving a small percentage of your estate can have a bigger impact on the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge than you might think. Contact Tammy V. Abshire, CFRE at 225-242-0108 or  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. today if you have questions about naming us as a beneficiary.
