Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for the Archdiocese of New York and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to the Archdiocese.
We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring Ways to Give and What to Give. Then compare gift options and/or calculate how these gifts could work for you. And of course, please contact us for assistance or to discuss your personal situation and objectives.
Create Your Legacy Through a Planned Gift
Charitable gifts help you meet your current philanthropic goals and extend your generosity well into the future. But did you know that a planned gift can also protect your assets, provide for your family, and guarantee you income for life? You can even make a significant impact through a gift that costs nothing in your lifetime (through a charitable bequest under your will).
What Do We Do With Your Gifts?
Help secure the future of the Archdiocese of New York for your family, friends, and yourself. Your gifts, combined with those of so many others, ensure that we are in a position to do immense good in many areas of concern. We are able to sustain numerous charitable offices, agencies, and programs to provide compassionate and effective assistance to those most in need. We will continue to offer financial support to our parishes and schools. We will continue to ensure excellent academic and spiritual formation in our schools and the best of catechetical training in our parishes. And finally, we will continue to care for our retired clergy and religious who have given their lives in service of the Church and to prepare our future clergy who will give theirs in the years to come.
Gifts by will can be used to create endowments that sustain support for the Archdiocese in perpetuity.
Irrevocable gifts assist the Archdiocese in financial planning by providing resources to forecast future support. In some cases irrevocable gifts can be recognized now with an appropriate named program or room in an archdiocesan facility. For example, the Archdiocese is slated to receive an interest in a home when the donor no longer needs the property. The future interest in the gift will help expand priestly vocation and formation, and the donor is able to know the benefit provided by the gift during her lifetime.
