The Joy of Giving

by Jan 18, 2017Blog, Our Stories, What we do0 comments

We are living in difficult times which call us to reflect on current and emerging needs in our society.

How will you continue to support charitable organizations and their ministry needs? Have you thought about future planned gifts? You can choose a method of giving that protects your family’s needs and offers greater tax savings while helping others in need. Generally planned gifts are not typically made from your current income. They are helpful ways to continue giving during this times of change.

Suggested ways to contribute to the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word in the future:

  • Include us in your will or trust. This is an easy and flexible way to extend your support. You can give a specific amount or leave a percentage of your estate.
  • Donate retirement plan assets. By making a simple designation on your plan’s beneficiary designation form, you can save your heirs from significant tax burden while supporting our students and programs.
  • Donate a life insurance policy. You can donate a no-longer needed policy or simply name the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word as the beneficiary.

To learn more about the various ways you can make a planned gift to the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, contact Esther at 210-828-2224 or
