Planned Giving

How can I make a Planned Gift?

  • Naming Aquinas Institute in a will or revocable trust, or naming the Aquinas as a beneficiary of an investment account, enables you to leave a legacy of that ensures that well-trained theologians and ministers will continue to serve the Church and to preach to Gospel for generations to come.
  • Lifetime income producing gifts like Charitable Gift Annuities or Charitable Remainder Trusts are well suited for individuals interested in leaving their mark on Aquinas Institute, but require income for their lifetime, or the life of a loved one.
  • Individuals aged 70½ and older facing required minimum distributions from an IRA may be interested in making Qualified Charitable Distributions.
  • There are a myriad of other possible strategies and we would be happy to speak with your tax and estate planning experts to discuss them.
