What’s Your Plan? Building & Leaving a Legacy RSVP

Holy Name Cathedral Planned Giving: Bequests

When making a gift in your living trust or will, please consider leaving a bequest to Holy Name Cathedral. Holy Name has been blessed over the years to have received many generous gifts from parishioners and friends who have included the Cathedral in their bequest plans.

Your gift may take many different forms:

  • A specific dollar amount. “I give $5,000 to…”
  • A specific property or asset. “I give 100 shares of 123 Inc. common stock to…”
  • A percentage of your estate. “I give 10 percent of my estate to…”
  • The remainder of your estate after your debts, estate administration expenses and other bequests. “I give the remainder of my estate to…”

Regardless of the form of the gift in your will, the language is “to the Catholic Bishop of Chicago, for the benefit of Holy Name Cathedral, Chicago, Illinois.”

If you would like to include Holy Name in your plans or have further questions, please contact Morgan Henington at (312) 573-4412 to discuss opportunities. Please notify her if you have named Holy Name Cathedral in your plans so you can be enrolled in our Cornerstone Society and receive invitations to special Masses and events for Society members.
