Opportunities to leave a legacy that will impact future generations

Wise financial planning lets us provide for our loved ones into the future and also offers a unique opportunity to serve God’s kingdom. You can expand your impact by considering opportunities for planned giving with Catholic Christian Outreach.

Legacy, or planned, giving is simply “planning to give.” Unlike traditional gifts made from your income during your lifetime, a legacy gift is often made from your assets (such as investments or real estate) or from your estate after death. These gifts provide an opportunity to extend your current support of CCO’s mission to reach young people with the Gospel, including initiatives such as:

  • Supporting CCO’s programs and ongoing formation of missionaries and student leaders
  • Helping expand the work of CCO to new campuses, to reach new student groups
  • Enabling many young men and women to discover and pursue vocations to the priesthood, religious life and marriage
  • Ensuring that our young people have the opportunity to encounter Christ while attending post-secondary institutions

Making a legacy gift can enable you to arrange your finances and estate to maximize gifts to your beneficiaries and minimize tax—and give you an opportunity to change the lives of young people for generations to come.

Tell me the character of a nation’s young people, and I will tell you the future of the nation. —Governor General Georges Vanier

Your Will and a Gift by Bequest

Having a will is simply good stewardship. If you die without a will, your assets are distributed according to provincial laws and you have no control over their allocation. You cannot adequately protect your loved ones and dependents without a will.

Advantages

  • Distribute your estate according to your wishes and in the best interests of your loved ones
  • Continue the legacy of charitable giving that you started in your lifetime
  • Provide for your family and those who depend on you when you are no longer here

We have been supporters of CCO for many years and we want CCO’s work to impact many future generations. We realized that an effective way for us to leave a lasting legacy would be to include a special bequest to CCO in our will. God has blessed us in so many ways and we are happy to give back in this way to support the faith of young people beyond our lifetime.”
