You may establish an annuity with the Sisters of the Living Word providing for annual income while living and offering a farsighted gift to SLW upon death. The Sisters of the Living Word have partnered with the National Catholic Community Foundation (NCCF) to manage our annuities. You may use their site to run your own projections with their planned giving calculator or contact Margaret Mei, Director of Mission Advancement, who will run the projections for you. National Catholic Community Foundation eNewsletter here.
You may wish to include the Sisters of Living Word in a will either by stating a set amount or a percentage of the estate. If you choose this option please consider sending a copy of the page listing the Sisters of the Living Word so those who come after us have a record of your intention. If you would like a codicil, click here.
If you have already made a will and provided for your heirs through the disbursement of property and other valuables, but still wish to make a gift to the Sisters of the Living Word now or upon death, you may want to consider a life insurance policy. You may name the Sisters of the Living Word as the beneficiary on an existing, paid life insurance policy.
All Partners in Mission of the Sisters of the Living Word will be recognized in an ongoing basis on the SLW website, other publications, and at certain events. Bequest and estate gifts received or pledged for the future are greatly appreciated and bless the Sisters and all whose lives they touch. Please contact Margie Mei, Director of Mission Advancement, for more information or to notify us of your own estate gift – firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-577-5972 ext. 226.
