Planned giving is a form of stewardship that allows you to benefit yourself and your loved ones and support the ministry and mission of St. Clement's.
Planned gifts can provide you with important income and estate tax benefits and in some cases a source of income for life. Common types of planned gifts include:
- Bequest in your Will or from a revocable trust
A gift from your estate is the simplest way to support St. Clement's. A bequest in your Will or a distribution at death from your revocable trust can be made using the following language: “I devise the sum of [dollar amount] to ST. CLEMENT'S CHURCH, Philadelphia, PA, for its general uses and purposes.”
- Naming St. Clement's as a beneficiary of retirement assets or life insurance.
- Gifts in kind of appreciated property, including real estate and securities
- Gifts of partial interests in real estate, including a remainder interest on your home.
How will St. Clement's use my gift?
Unless you specifically direct otherwise, your planned gift will be added to our endowment fund.
If you wish to make a gift for a specific purpose, or you would like to give an interest in real property, please speak with the Rector
