How Your Will Keeps Giving, After You’re Gone

 

A will or living trust allows you to protect your loved ones long after your lifetime. These documents also grant you the power to provide vital resources to causes you care deeply about—resources that organizations and institutions like the Diocese of Baton Rouge need in order to thrive.

Here are a few basic truths to keep in mind when using your will or trust to make a lasting connection to the Diocese of Baton Rouge:


Make Your Gift Work for You, and for the Diocese

Including us in your will or trust is incredibly easy. Start by contacting us to request official wording for your gift. Then ask your estate planning attorney to use this language when you create your will or trust. If you already have a will or trust, simply ask your attorney to update your existing documents.


Keep Key Benefits in Mind as You Plan

  • It’s worry-free. You won’t give anything away until after your passing, so you can keep using your possessions and finances.
  • You have choices. You can give us a specific item, an amount of money, a gift contingent upon certain events, or a percentage of your estate.

 

Always Remember That We’re Here to Help

 If you’re ready to make a gift, we’re here to help answer any questions. The potential of a life well-lived extends far beyond your own lifetime. Contact us to discover what a great impact you can have—now, and long into the future.
