You may be concerned about the high cost of capital gains tax with the sale of an appreciated asset. Perhaps you recently sold property and are looking for a way to save on taxes this year and plan for retirement. A charitable remainder unitrust might offer the solutions you need!
Fr. William Joseph Chaminade, a French Catholic priest along with his companions, Thérèse Charlotte de Lamourous and Sr. Adèle de Batz de Trenquelléon survived persecution during the French Revolution and founded the Sodality of the Marianist Family.
Chaminade's concept of the Sodality with the support of his companions was to gather all Christians — men and women, young and old, lay and clerical — into a unique community of Christ's followers unafraid to be known as such, committed to living and sharing their faith, and dedicated to supporting one another in living the Gospel to the fullest. The enterprise was placed under the patronage and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary dedicated to sharing her mission of bringing Christ into the contemporary world.
In honor of Blessed Fr. Chaminade, St. Vincent-St. Mary High School established the Chaminade Society, recognizing individuals and families who have included STVM in their estate plans. In the future, those planned gifts will play a critical role in the growth of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, serving the needs of the hundreds of students who rely on scholarship and financial aid to fund their education. Members of the Chaminade Society are motivated by the Marianist mission in hopes of providing for the next generation of talented students.
The cornerstone of most estate plans is a well-written will. If you do not currently have a will, below is a list of reasons why you should consider one:
Whether you are considering making a will for the first time, or revising one, you should always consult your attorney as to the appropriate language that will meet your wishes.
