Legacy Giving

legacy giving

Over the past years many parishioners and friends have left legacies to the Cathedral of Saint Andrew. Their financial gifts – both large and small – have made an incalculable difference in the lives of those who worship at the Cathedral. Their generous planned gifts have supported every part of our ministry – from our social outreach programs, spiritual formation, sacred arts, and the preservation of our Cathedral and grounds. Their legacies have become a part of the Cathedral’s legacy!

A charitable gift is one of the easiest ways that you can leave a lasting impact on the Cathedral parish – your Legacy. Today there are many ways for you to include the Cathedral of Saint Andrew in your planned giving.

  • Provision in Will or Revocable Living Trust
  • Life Insurance
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Retirement Plan or IRA

As there are diverse legal and financial instruments available to you, we encourage you to contact your attorney or financial planner for help in exploring the many options for remembering the Cathedral in your planned giving.

What is your legacy? Remembering the Cathedral of Saint Andrew with a gift in your planned giving is a way to say something about what you value the most.

A planned gift can be UNRESTRICTED gifts of cash, personal or real property which you allow the pastor to use for those projects or ministries that are most needed at the time. You can also give these assets as a RESTRICTED gift. This directs the parish in how the funds are to be used, allowing you to support specifically those needs and ministries which are important to you.

At the Cathedral Saint Andrew, our Legacy Giving Donors are remembered for their planned giving. All donors are thanked for their generosity and given a state of the parish report at an annual dinner with the Pastor.

To let the parish know that you have remembered the Cathedral in your planned giving please contact the Cathedral Rector & Pastor, Fr. John Geaney, or Director of Development, Joe Chiaramonte.

For additional general information on Planned Gifts for the Cathedral, contact Joe Chiaramonte, Executive Associate & Director of Development.
