Planned and Estate Giving
The Horsemen Honors Legacy Society:
Leaving Your Tribute while Providing for the Future
St. Michael’s is blessed by the philanthropy of its alumni, families and friends. Their generosity ensures that the school remains a leader in Catholic education while also providing for St. Michael’s future. With planned and estate gifts, you can make extraordinary contributions either now or in the future, while considering your family and other heirs at the same time. And you may be able to make a more significant gift than you thought possible.
The Horsemen Honors Legacy Society, which honors individuals who have included St. Michael's in their planned and estate giving, secures St. Michael’s future. Planned and estate gifts provide wonderful opportunities for individuals and families to demonstrate their support for St. Michael’s. Planned and estate gifts can also provide income to loved ones as well as capital gains and estate tax relief.
Cash or Property
Life Income Gifts
A life income gift allows you to give assets to St. Michael's while providing yourself or your family members with income for a period of time before St. Michael's is permitted to use the gift. You may make a life income gift by transferring securities, cash, or other property to a trustee. The trustee then manages the investment of the assets and pays an income to you, your designated beneficiaries, or both. Income payments continue for the beneficiaries' lives or, in some cases, for a term of up to 20 years.
There are several kinds of life income gifts available such as Charitable Reminder Unitrusts and Charitable Gift Annuities, to name a few.
