What is Planned Giving?

Planned giving combines your personal and financial goals to help meet your charitable giving objectives. There are many options available for charitable giving in circumstances that otherwise may not allow you to provide a charitable contribution to the Church. Charitable giving takes many forms, and you are encouraged to consider an option that best suits your circumstances.

As Christian stewards, we have a shared responsibility to celebrate the sacraments, proclaim the word of God and exercise the ministry of charity to help our Church, its parishes, schools and agencies to become a true community of faith with vibrant resources. To do so means to provide financial support for today—and, at the same time, build a firm financial foundation for tomorrow.

Planned giving provides a variety of opportunities to support the ministries of the Church and to help secure the future of our faith. Through your gift, the Church will continue to be strong and healthy as it meets the spiritual needs of future generations.

Our brochure is designed to introduce you to planned giving opportunities. You are invited to contact the Catholic Community Foundation, Inc., at 317-236-1427 or 800-382-9836, ext. 1427, for a confidential conversation about your charitable giving and financial goals and objectives.

The IRA Charitable Rollover is an excellent way to support the mission of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, its parishes, schools and agencies—and save taxes.
