Consider a Bequest or a Trust
You can make a difference for generations to come by remembering your congregation or the diocese in your estate planning. Just be sure to identify the congregation (or the diocese) using its correct legal name. Remember your family, friends and all the charitable concerns that have been dear to you in life. Consult your attorney as you make your will. The Director of Finance and Administration of the Diocese (The Rev. Don Bushyager: firstname.lastname@example.org or 412 281-6131 ext. 151) can also assist.
Best Laid Plans …
Planned giving is an effective, and potentially tax advantaged, method of donating funds to selected beneficiaries by means of a Will or Trust. But plans can go awry if circumstances change. We strongly recommend that anyone who has included a bequest to the Diocese, a parish, or any related ministry, take the time to review the description in their Will or Trust to ensure that the intended beneficiary is clearly identified. In particular, organizations whose identity was unambiguous before realignment may require further clarification now. Make sure your bequest is received by those for whom it is intended. Clergy, please share this information with your congregation. Assistance can be had from the Chancellor through the Diocesan Office if needed.
