Planned Giving

Leave a legacy that reflects your faith. It’s easy to postpone decisions about our estates, whatever size they may be. Yet this is the final way that each of us can say, “I lived and I loved this person, this place, this cause!”

Through your bequests you set an example of philanthropy and preserve what mattered to you during your lifetime.

  • Leaving a legacy gift through your Will
  • Establish a Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Creating a gift annuity
  • Designate The Basilica of Saint Mary (tax ID 41-0695501) or The Basilica Landmark (tax ID 41-1754864 as a beneficiary of a 401(k), IRA, or life insurance policy.

All individuals and families who make a planned gift automatically become members of The Basilica Landmark Legacy Society.
