First: Decide what to give.
Many people contribute a dollar amount or specific property. Still others make a gift of a percentage of the residue of their estate. Furthermore, there are a number of methods by which you can put your assets in trust for the benefit of a spouse or family member for their lifetimes where all or part of the remainder is given to the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston.
Second: Decide how to give it.
Charitable bequest can be either restricted or unrestricted. Unrestricted bequests allow the Sisters of Saint Joseph to decide the best use of these assets to further their mission. However, you may decide to restrict the use of the gift for a specific purpose. You may make the gift “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of” your family or a particular individual. Such gifts would be recognized appropriately.
Third: Take the time to include us in your will.
A simple codicil to your will donating a dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or specific property is all that it takes. The legal name of the Congregation is Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston.
We encourage you to contact us and make your wishes known. If we are aware of your plans to include us in your will, we can help you receive the most satisfaction for your gift and show our gratitude for your generosity.
