Bequests

Please consider leaving a bequest to Bishop DuBourg High School in your Estate Planning documents. You may do so by leaving a gift from your estate to DB, make DB your life insurance beneficiary or make DB the recipient of your charitable gift annuity upon your passing from this life. Please visit the website of the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri (RCFEM) at http://rcfstl.org/ or contact them at 314-918-2890 or info@rcfstl.org. The Roman Catholic Foundation is the planned giving agency for the Archdiocese and their staff is skilled at helping donors make the right choice for a planned gift. One of our alumni, for example, Bob Gau, ’57, has established an endowment for tuition assistance, named for his late wife, Kathleen, through RCFEM. Bob enjoyed working with the Foundation and is featured on their website. 

Enjoy a Guaranteed Payment for Life!

Have you considered establishing a charitable gift annuity as a way to make a gift to Bishop DuBourg High School and still receive a benefit for yourself and/or your spouse for the remainder of your lives? Interest rates on CDs and other fixed income investments have declined over recent years. Individuals are in search of ways to maintain cash flow, seek the security of guaranteed payments and save on taxes.

 

Charitable gift annuities are offered in four different types:

  • Single-Life Annuity: an annuity payment to only one person for his or her lifetime.
  • Spousal Joint-Life Annuity: an annuity payment to married couples (upon death of the first annuitant, the remaining spouse is paid the full annuity payment during his or her lifetime).
  • Two-Life Annuity: an annuity payment to one person and then transfers to the second person upon the death of the first person.
  • Deferred Gift Annuity: an annuity payment that can be deferred to a future date. (Date must be at least one year after the original contribution).
 

With a charitable gift annuity, you can choose to receive your payments quarterly, semi-annually or annually. To find our more about charitable gift annuities or other charitable ways to benefit Bishop DuBourg High School, please contact President Fr. Mike Lydon at 314.783.4430 or visit the Archdiocesan website for more information.
