Wills and Estate Planning Leave a Legacy of Love to Mary and her shrine.

Designate The Miraculous Medal Shrine as the beneficiary of your asset by will, trust, or other instrument.

Charitable Bequest

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest and most flexible ways that you can leave a gift to The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal that will make a lasting impact.

Benefits of a bequest:

  •     Receive an estate tax charitable deduction
  •     Reduce the burden of taxes on your family
  •     Leave a lasting legacy to charity

How a bequest works: A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or CAMM as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest using a beneficiary designation form.

Here are some of the ways to leave a bequest to CAMM

  •     Include a bequest to CAMM in your will or revocable trust
  •     Designate CAMM as a full, partial or contingent beneficiary of your retirement account (IRA, 401(k),   403(b) or pension)
  •     Name CAMM as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy

A bequest may be made in several ways:

  •     Percentage bequest – make a gift of a percentage of your estate
  •     Specific bequest – make a gift of a specific dollar amount or a specific asset
  •     Residual bequest – make a gift from the balance or residue of your estate
