In One Sentence, Make the Impossible Possible

Remember the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Your Will or Living Trust

What if all you had to do to ensure our organization can be successful for years to come is to write a simple sentence? Sound impossible?


Securing the future of those we serve really is as simple as one sentence. By including a gift to the Diocese of Baton Rouge in your will, you can support our mission tomorrow without giving away any of your assets today.


If you are ready to include a gift to the diocese in your will, contact us get the suggested sentence to add to your will.


Including our organization in your will is a popular gift to give because it is:

  • Affordable. The actual giving of your gift occurs after your lifetime, so your current income is not affected.
  • Flexible. Until your will goes into effect, you are free to alter your plans or change your mind.
  • Versatile. You can give a specific item, a set amount of money, or a percentage of your estate. You can also make your gift contingent upon certain events.

 

How a Gift in Your Will Works

Your estate planning attorney can help you structure a gift so, after you’re gone, your loved ones will be taken care of first. Your attorney will include this sentence in a new will or living trust, or can simply add it to existing documents through an amendment called a codicil. A popular option is to leave a percentage of what remains of your estate after other beneficiaries have received their share. This way, your gift remains proportionate to the size of your estate, no matter.

 

Is Including a Gift in Your Will Right for You?

If any of the following apply to you and your situation, you’re ready to write the Diocese of Baton Rouge into your life’s story through your will.

  • You want the opportunity to guide decisions about the future ownership of your possessions and the legacy you leave behind.
  • You want to make sure your support of our work is still available after your lifetime.
  • You want to balance your generosity to us with an assurance that loved ones are taken care of first.
  • You want the flexibility to change your mind about your gift at any time.
