The Via Christi Foundation Legacy Society recognizes people who are establishing estate gifts now, to allow us to continue to fulfill our mission in the future. These gifts may take the form of will or trust bequests, charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, life insurance or other types of charitable planned gifts.
Sometimes such gifts go unrecognized because they come at the end of the donor's life. The Via Christi Foundation Legacy Society provides a way to recognize and thank our donors during their lifetimes.
Members of the Legacy Society are recognized in foundation publications and donor recognition displays, and are honored at our yearly Legacy Society luncheon. In addition, our staff is available to Legacy Society members and their advisors to discuss estate and gift planning questions and concerns.
How to become a Legacy Society member
You are already eligible for membership in the Legacy Society if you have made arrangements in your will, or through some other form of deferred giving, for a gift to the Via Christi Foundation. Your gifts of cash, stock, real estate or other asset can initiate your membership. Simply complete this form to notify us of your plans.
Personalizing your gift
Once we know your intentions, we can help you make more precise arrangements for how the Via Christi Foundation will use your gift, to help you tailor your charitable gift to fit your personal situation. We will be happy to work with you and your advisor to structure a gift that is unrestricted in use, supports your particular area of interest, is added to your donor-advised fund, or is designated in another way you specify.
Please feel free to contact the Via Christi Foundation to discuss the many planned giving options available to you.
