Think for a moment about what St. Dominic’s means to you. Has St. Dominic’s made a difference in your life or the life of your family? Do you have warm memories of Dominicans, past and present, who have served you here? Maybe you or your children attended St. Dominic School or St. Rose Academy, or were baptized or married here. Maybe you were inspired by the church’s soaring Gothic beauty, or made lasting friendships through our peer community groups or our many volunteer ministries.
In light of your experiences, please consider how you can play a role in securing the future of St. Dominic’s with a planned gift. Many planned giving options are available – for instance, naming St. Dominic’s in your will or trust, or as beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement plan.
Your estate plan can ensure that you have provided for the well-being of your loved ones. It can also serve as a final message that reflects your spiritual values and leaves a lasting legacy to your parish.
As friends and parishioners, old and new, we are all beneficiaries of more than 100 years of Dominican service and parishioner generosity. You can help ensure that St. Dominic's continues as a campus of lifelong faith formation and a hub of service to the San Francisco community. If you love St. Dominic’s, please consider making a planned gift to sustain the parish in its Gospel mission of reaching out to others.
Build a Legacy and Secure the Future of St. Dominic’s.
Everyone leaves behind an estate, whether it is a large house and investment portfolio, or simply an insurance policy and some cherished jewelry. Whatever the size of your estate, you should choose how you want it to be distributed – otherwise, the state's laws will decide for you. If you want to benefit a beloved relative, a close friend, or a favorite charity, you need to make it happen by documenting your wishes in a will or trust. This is part of the estate planning process.
Planned giving can be part of this process. Planned giving refers to various ways in which people can make charitable gifts through their estate planning. Planned giving enables individuals to make larger gifts than they could make from their income. The most common type of planned gift is a gift made to charity upon your death through a will, trust, insurance policy, or qualified retirement plan.
St. Dominic’s relies on planned gifts of all types to help meet the costs of sustaining its mission and of restoring and maintaining the church building and grounds. Please remember St. Dominic’s when creating or updating your estate plan. It’s easy. It’s meaningful. And every gift to St. Dominic’s makes a real difference to the future of its ministries.
