Have you considered including the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of St. Josaphat in Parma in your will? A will is an expression of your commitment to the principles, people and institutions that you cherish here on earth. As an active participant and a supporter of your Church, a bequest in your will ensures that the work of the Ukrainian Catholic Church can continue after you are gone. It is a lasting testament that has great significance.
Remembering your Eparchy in your will is easy to do. Here is an example of the words you can use to do this:
“I give and bequeath to the Ukrainian Catholic Diocese of St. Josaphat in Parma, located in Parma, Ohio, _____% of the residue of my estate [or: the sum of $______].”
Tax-Smart Giving of Appreciated Stock or other Assets
The gift of an asset such as common stock or mutual fund shares is a smart way to make a contribution and receive maximum tax benefits based on the value of the asset. Gifts of other appreciated assets such as land, antiques, and homes, can also be utilized as potential gifts with valuable tax benefits. Gifts of these assets should be considered on a case-by-case basis.
