Managing God’s Resources
Your Bequest Empowers
“Love Never Ends” 1 Corinthians 13:8
When creating your final plans, please remember Catholic World Mission. A planned gift to CWM ensures that your care and concern for God’s most destitute children and families will continue long after you are gone by empowering the poor and sharing the Gospel of Christ.
You can designate your gift to one of our three pillars of work: Dignified Living, Education or Evangelization. Each pillar represents part of our commitment to Christ and support for impoverished people worldwide. Here is how a charitable bequest can contribute to each:
- Dignified living: We provide hope through projects that supply daily necessities like food, water, shelter and health care.
- Education: Education is an opportunity to start anew. We use donations to develop programs that help children realize their God-given potential.
- Evangelization: Sharing the Gospel of Christ lays a foundation for spiritual wealth. We partner with communities open to the Word of God and help unite our world under Him.
Can’t decide? Your gift to our general fund will leave a huge impact and be deeply appreciated by so many disadvantaged children and their families and our partner priests, sisters, and missionaries who care for them.
Benefits of a Planned Gift
“How Shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?” Psalm 116:12
We can all give thanks by giving back to those we love. No matter what the size of our estate, everyone should have at least a basic will. A will or a living trust, allows you to exercise your own wishes in distributing all of your possessions, your business, or investments while providing for your loved ones and the groups that you cherish. Ideally, your plans should provide for:
- Yourself as long as you live
- Your family and dependents
- Others that you wish to repay a favor or show gratitude
- Christ, the Church and charitable organizations you support
Making a bequest to charity in your will can change the life of someone in need. When you decide to give back through the Gospel of Christ, you invest in a person’s life, health and faith. At Catholic World Mission, we encourage bequests in wills because we know the difference it can make.
Leaving a gift to charity in your will provides material and spiritual support to impoverished communities. As Proverbs 19:17 declares, “Whoever cares for the poor lends to the Lord, who will pay back the sum in full.” We believe our donors change the world. You give a generational gift when you empower the poor through a charitable bequest.
