Planting Seeds of Faith
“We plant the seeds that one day will grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.” —Bishop Ken Untener of Saginaw
To leave the world a better place than it was when you were born means to make choices. Some do this by raising children, others by writing music, creating art or poetry, supporting human rights—all of which impact the future of our world.
At RENEW International we have an opportunity for you to make a difference in our Church, to leave a unique legacy that will impact the present and future of Catholicism and the world.
By making a gift to the Msgr. Thomas A. Kleissler Legacy Society, you help RENEW to expand its mission of empowering individuals and communities to encounter God in daily life, deepen and share faith, and connect faith with action. The Legacy Society offers a way to donate a portion of your estate to RENEW International either now or in the future, including:
1. Cash, appreciated securities, real estate or other property
2. Life insurance policies, (old and new)
3. Cash value from life insurance policies
4. Charitable gift annuities
5. Charitable lead trusts and remainder trusts
6. IRAs and other retirement assets.
In addition to opening the door to new possibilities for you in charitable giving, the Msgr. Thomas A. Kleissler Legacy Society can become an important financial planning tool. Many of the estate-giving tools mentioned above can help you:
- Reduce taxes
- Secure income for you for the rest of your life
- Reduce taxes on assets you want to leave to your children and grandchildren
If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please contact Sr. Honora Nolty, OP, at (908) 769-5400, ext. 162. We can offer the services of an experienced certified public accountant/personal financial specialist who will be happy to meet with you to give you a confidential assessment of what may be possible and beneficial to you and RENEW International. You would find this discussion very rewarding.
