Planned Giving

As Catholic Stewards, we are commissioned with the duty to pass on the Catholic Faith to future generations.

Through a planned gift you can pass on this legacy. If you treasure Catholic your faith and would like to invest in its future, please consider a planned gift to your parish or programs and ministries of the Archdiocese of Newark. 

Benefits of a Planned Gift

  • Extend a donor's generosity beyond their lifetime.  

  • Obtain charitable tax deductions now, even for a gift in the future.

  • Reduce probate costs and estate taxes. 

  • Reduce capital gains taxes. 

  • Protect your estate for your heirs. 

  • Realize the dream of making a substantial gift that will have a lasting impact.
