1884 Legacy Society

Planned giving is a thoughtful way to play an important part in the long term success and growth of Trinity Episcopal and to help assure that its missions will continue to grow for generations to come.

Other Seed fell into good soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirty and sixty and a hundredfold — Mark 4:8

In the spirit of Mark 4:8, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral has established The 1884 Legacy Society to recognize and thank those who have acknowledged a commitment to the church’s future either with an endowment gift during their lifetime or through their estate planning.

While a donor may wish to remain anonymous, The 1884 Legacy Society provides an opportunity to celebrate those who have followed the example of Bishop Pierce and his exemplary devotion to the future of the church. These gifts will allow present generations to ensure the future of our ministries in a profound and meaningful way.

You may become a member of The 1884 Legacy Society by including Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in your plans. A gift during your lifetime of appreciated assets such as securities, or property, could provide certain current tax benefits. Other lifetime gifts could provide compelling income for life to the donor as well as tax benefits. Gifts could also include bequests made through a will or a trust, or by naming the church as beneficiary of an insurance policy or a retirement account.

Your gift, regardless of size or type, would build a sustaining legacy for Trinity Episcopal Cathedral.

Endowment Fund

Gifts made through the 1884 Legacy Society are invested in the Endowment Fund. The purpose of Endowment Fund is to enable the Parish to more completely fulfil its mission by developing its ministries beyond what is possible through its annual operating funds. The Endowment Fund is managed by an independent Endowment Board that is appointed by the Vestry.

1884 Legacy Society Advisory Board

We're committed to making sure your gift reaches your intended purpose. After you contact the 1884 Legacy Society, a member of our Advisory Board will contact you to guide you through the process endowing your gift and recording your intention.
