Planting Seeds

“All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.” – Proverb

Flower seeds come in all shapes and sizes, yet when they are planted, prosper and bloom, they bring much joy. There are many ways you can “plant a seed” with the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict:

  • Make a bequest to the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict in your will
  • Include the sisters as beneficiaries of a charitable trust or life insurance policy
  • Share an IRA charitable rollover with the sisters
  • Utilize your donor advised funds
  • Ask your employer about matching gift opportunities

Discuss these options with your financial advisor, tax advisor or lawyer today. For more information, contact Sister Nina Lasceski, planned giving specialist, at (320) 363-7051 or
