Planned Giving

Planned gifts through bequests and other gift provisions are vitally important to the future of St. David’s Episcopal Church.

All who love St. David’s are warmly invited to consider a planned gift to St. David’s Episcopal Church Foundation, as part of their giving journey. Every household among us is called to think deeply about how to live our faith and to believe that as we are given, we can give. Legacy gifts are potentially for all of us – something to be thought of proportionately to our means, rather than as a matter of how much wealth we do or don’t have. Molly Sharpe, Past Chair of the St. David’s Church Foundation, discusses her experience in making a planned gift.

Immediate gifts may be made by sending a check directed to: St. David’s Episcopal Church Foundation, 301 East 8th Street, Austin, TX 78701. If the gift is an honorarium or memorial, please note who is to be honored or remembered and where an acknowledgment should be sent.

The Sumners Legacy Society recognizes those who have made a bequest or other planned gift from their estate. These can be gifts of any size and can be structured as a dollar amount of percentage. They can also be distributed from life insurance policies, annuities, and IRA and 401 (k) accounts. As you consider your journey with St. David’s, we invite you to consider joining the Sumners Legacy Society in your estate plans.

Preparing your Final Affairs

Planning for a Graceful Exit is a comprehensive booklet for end of life planning. Making plans for your funeral, end of life medical decisions, and desires for your estate is a final gift you can give your loved ones. The booklet includes estate and end-of-life decisions as well as language for bequests.
