By Sister Laura Goedken, OP
If your parish and the Diocese of Davenport have been important in your life, you can leave a legacy and make a difference in the lives that follow. You may want to consider including your parish, school and/or the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Davenport in your estate plans; you could restrict your gift to seminary education or deacon formation. Maybe you would like to include our Catholic Charities or Social Action Department in your plans. Catholic education and faith formation might be your priorities.
Let the last gift of your lifetime speak of what is important to you. You could make a gift in your will or trust. You might consider leaving your Retirement Plan to the Church. A gift through your estate helps ensure the good works continue.
