Planned Giving

Love is the bond that unites us with one another and with God.

Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger, Letter #949, 1850

 

The mission of the School Sisters of Notre Dame is to proclaim the good news, directing our entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. With your financial support, SSNDs are able to serve in a variety of ministries, helping individuals who are marginalized by serving in traditional schools, non-traditional education environments, hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, parishes and agencies addressing social issues.

Did you know that making a planned gift helps secure SSND’s future while helping you in return? Your generosity will provide for the needs of sisters who dedicate their lives to serve youth, women and the poor. Your planned gift will automatically enroll you into our legacy society, which is our Blessed Theresa Society, where you will be prayed for daily.

Having an estate plan may protect your assets and secure your interests and intentions. Your estate plan does not have to alter your current lifestyle and may be modified to your changing needs. It is  recommended to have a financial planner, advisor or attorney help create a legal document to meet your goals. The Director of Resource Development for the Central Pacific Province, Mary Kay Murray, looks forward to working with you and your financial planner or legal advisor to implement your SSND charitable goals.

The flexibility of an estate plan provides you with peace of mind.

The versatility allows you to name School Sisters of Notre Dame Central Pacific Province, Inc. in any legal document you choose.
