Planned Gifts

Bequests

Including a Charitable Gift in your Will can be simple to do.   It can be as easy as including language stating, “I give ten percent of the net value of my estate to the Capuchin Franciscan Friars, Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis.”
You can change your mind. We won’t receive the gift until after your death. During your lifetime, you can amend anything you choose, i.e., beneficiaries, amounts, etc. Tax-wise, it could be beneficial. Gifts to qualified charitable organizations reduce the value of your estate for estate tax purposes.


It’s an easy way to support The Capuchin Franciscan Friars, Province of the Sacred Stigmata of Saint Francis, and we’d be grateful for your gift. Bequests of every size build our future financial strength.  How you include a gift in your will or revocable trust depends on what you want to accomplish, and what you want to give to the charity. 


Here are some options:

  • Give a percentage of your estate — e.g., “I give 25% of the net value of my estate as finally determined for federal estate tax purposes to The Capuchin Franciscan Friars, Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis”


  • Give a percentage of the residue of your estate — the amount left after specific bequests have been given to individuals and organizations; e.g., “I give 25% of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate to The Capuchin Franciscan Friars, Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis”


  • Give a specific dollar amount or item of property; e.g., “I give The Capuchin Franciscan Friars, Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis the amount of $5,000” or “I give The Capuchin Franciscan Friars, Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis 50 shares of XXX stock.”
