Planned Giving

Please consider a legacy gift to people you’ll never know, people you’ll never meet who are suffering hardships you can never relate to, people who will be around long after you are gone, people who will make changes in their lives that will bring long-term stability for their families…because you cared.

Planned giving allows donors to create a legacy for the future. You may choose to support the Society of St. Vincent de Paul via gifts of appreciated stocks or mutual funds, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, IRAs, and bequests. Gifts of this type offer many advantages for donors and for the family who inherits an estate, such as: 

  • Income tax deductions.
  • Capital gains tax savings.
  • Avoidance of probate.
  • Reduction/elimination of inheritance and estate taxes.
  • Increased income from your investments.
  • Clarity for your beneficiaries.
  • A legacy of support to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. 

Please consult with your financial advisor and make your wishes known through a will to ensure that your intentions are fulfilled. To learn more, please call development officer Anne Kirwan at (314) 881-6024.

You must not be content with tiding the poor over the poverty crisis; you must study their condition and the injustices that brought about such poverty with the aim of a long-term improvement.
