Memorial Gifts

  •      Remembering the Church in your will is a wonderful way to give thanks for your faith and support the future work of the Church locally, in the Diocese or nationally. Planned, or deferred, gifts can provide significant benefits to you and your loved ones now and in the future, while benefiting the Church for generations to come.
        A legacy gift to your parish church could pay for:

    • Structural improvements, to make existing buildings more welcoming and accessible
    • New facilities for the parish and the local community
    • Ministry to young people, families, the elderly or other groups

         The Catholic Foundation of the Green Bay Diocese will work with you and your financial advisors to create a gift plan that is individualized for you. They can suggest avenues to support, and assist you with the legal phrasing of such gifts. For more information, contact Cindi Brawner, Senior Relationship Manager, at (920) 272-8173 or 1-877-500-3580, ext. 8173.
