Supporting the Historic Treasures and Inspiring Works of the Franciscan Monastery Can be Your Legacy
Remembering the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America is a wonderful way to preserve and promote America’s Catholic heritage and the teachings of our faith for generations.
To assist our mission you may name the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America in your will. A bequest to the Franciscan Monastery, an I.R.C. Sect. 501 (c) (3), is not subject to estate tax. The Franciscan Monastery is a religious institution that is operated, supervised, and controlled in connection with the Roman Catholic Church in the United States, its territories or possessions and appears in the Official Catholic Directory.
All that you leave will promote the mission of the Monastery and our work on behalf of the Holy Land, its Friars and the Church Universal.
Making a bequest is not difficult. All you need to do is add the following statement to your will:
“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America 1400 Quincy Street, NE, Washington, DC 20017 (here state what you would like to leave) for its mission to promote our Catholic heritage.”
You can leave a percentage of your estate, a specific amount in dollars, or a specified piece of property. The staff of the Franciscan Monastery would be most happy to provide further information about the many charitable gift options that are available. Please contact the Monastery at 202-526-6800. To secure maximum benefits in your estate planning, we recommend that you consult with legal and financial advisers.
If you have planned or are planning to leave a gift to the Franciscan Monastery, please let us know so that we may express our appreciation to you.
