Please indicate if your gift is made in honor or memory of someone.
Planned gifts include wills/bequests, life insurance policies, gifts of property/real estate and individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Often, a bequest can be arranged simply with the addition of a codicil to amend your existing will. Please consult your legal, financial and tax advisors for advice and information on applicable state and federal laws.
Donors who have remembered the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict as a beneficiary of a planned gift become members of the Benedictine Sisters Heritage Society.
For help in planning your will, request a Will Planning Inventory, an estate planning guide book from Sister Nina Lasceski at (320) 363-7051 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
