What footprints will you leave behind?


Everyone leaves footprints. They are made by the positive impressions our lives leave on others. Thoughtful estate planning and making a will are means that we have to make a print in the sand, to help others recall our values. Have you made your will?

One way to leave a thoughtful footprint is to sign a new or updated will. Not sure where to start? Visit our planned giving website to access our online wills planner or request a PDF of a Wills Guide. It's a great place to start before meeting with your estate planning attorney so you feel prepared with thoughtful questions while planning for your future.  

The Catholic Foundation is a resource as your plan your future and your legacy. Let us help. Contact Cheryl Mansour or Michael George for help with developing a personal solution to meet your charitable goals.  

Personal Planner: Seven Questions on Gifts to Children


Many questions arise when we consider the options for giving to children. Why should we give? When, what and how should we give? It's important to make gifts in an optimum manner at the right time. So when planning your estate consider how best to give to your children.
