Including Old St. Pat’s in your estate planning leaves a lasting legacy and helps us to continue the OSP mission in your name for generations to come. There are many ways in which you can incorporate Old St. Pat’s into your estate and to do so is less complicated than you might think.
A well drafted will or living trust allows you to distribute your assets in an orderly fashion. Charitable bequests are an opportunity to make a lasting impact that touches people’s lives in a positive way. Additionally, charitable bequests are 100% deductible under current estate tax laws.
Please consider designating Old St. Patrick’s Church as a recipient of your estate with the following language:
“I give to the Catholic Bishop of Chicago, a corporation sole (dollar amount or percentage of the residue of the estate) for use and benefit of Old St. Patrick’s Church, 711 W. Monroe, Chicago IL 60661.”
