Planned Giving to the Archdiocese of Chicago

The Beazley family is a wonderful witness to how everything is possible with God. Read More

We want you to know about some unique financial tools you can use to plan your gift to the Archdiocese or one of its parishes, schools or agencies, so that it also returns benefits to you.

Did you know that:

  • You don't have to use cash to make your gift — donate appreciated securities instead. The deduction is the same as for a cash gift, and you pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • Give an asset that may help us more than it's helping you — such as a life insurance policy whose coverage your family no longer needs, or real estate like a second home or a parcel of undeveloped land, or even a collection of books or artwork that you no longer have room to display.
  • You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime — name the Archdiocese of Chicago as a beneficiary of your will or revocable trust, or of your retirement plan.
  • You can make the Archdiocese of Chicago a partner in your giving — you can deed us your home but continue to live there or you can sell us property at a charitable discount.

How do I start?

To find out your giving options, go to Gift Plans. Discover the variety of funding choices at Assets to Give. Compare the plans and see which come closest to your needs at Goals & Benefits.
