A Personal Approach to Giving

Including a gift in your will is a thoughtful way to support the causes and organizations that are close to your heart—respected institutions like the Diocese of Baton Rouge, for example. It’s an easy way to support our mission in the future without using any of your assets today.

Consider two special features that make this a popular type of gift:

  1. Flexibility. A gift in your will lets you balance your charitable goals with the future needs of your loved ones. Because you aren’t parting with assets today, you don’t have to worry about living expenses and future medical costs should you need the assets during your lifetime. Plus, you can change your mind at any time.
  1. Versatility. You can give a percentage of your estate to the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge. Most people can’t predict the exact size of their final estate; therefore, making a gift by using a percentage amount can be a more effective means of dividing it. This allows you to benefit loved ones and the Diocese of Baton Rouge in proportion.
