Gifts for the Future

Planned Giving Gifts provided through estate planning allow the school plan for future capital projects or tuition assistance. Planned gifts provide excellent tax benefit to our donors.

There are several different ways to prepare bequests: a general bequest offers Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary with a specific amount or percentage of your estate. A residual and contingent bequest provides for your family first and then a portion may go to CSHM.
