Bequests (Gifts through a Will)
Anna: But we wanted to do more than just make gifts. Joe and I have been pretty careful with our spending over the years and have been able to save enough for our retirement. We really don't need much. Yes, we plan to be generous with our family, but we also have the ability to be generous with the Church. That means a lot to us.
Joe: After talking it over, we decided to leave a bequest in each of our wills. Our attorney took the simple language available from the Catholic Foundation of Eastern Montana and included a nice bequest in my will as well as Anna's. We feel good about leaving something to the Church that will help it forever.
