Estate Planning

Your Legacy Continued

Estate planning is essential for many reasons: protecting your assets, maintaining your privacy, and minimizing taxes are a few. Most importantly, estate planning provides peace of mind because it ensures your wishes are fulfilled. When we think about the future and making a difference for the ones who will follow in our footsteps, estate planning is a great way to accomplish that goal. Your wishes may include using your assets to help secure your family’s future, or you may choose to support an organization you’re passionate about. Many generous individuals have remembered the Shrine while they were planning their estates. What you may view as a minimal gift from your estate has a large positive effect here at the Shrine for the next generation. Previous received estate gifts have allowed The Shrine to complete many much-needed projects on The Shrine grounds that would not otherwise have funding. From purchasing new equipment to ensuring the day-to-day cost of operating The Shrine is covered, estate gifts are the special kind of gift that prompt positive change while securing your legacy.

The Shrine has partnered with, offering you a unique opportunity to write your will from a Catholic perspective – completely free of charge.
