End of Life Planning

An estate plan should give you peace of mind – knowing that important, and sometimes difficult decisions have been made to care for you and your loved ones. It is important to designate a specific person to manage your property, help medical providers with important decisions, and make certain you are receiving the best possible care.

Leave a Lasting Legacy


A Catholic end of life plan is vital to making sure your wishes are carried out and can help you leave a lasting personal legacy. A well thought out plan will make sure that you, your spouse, your loved ones and your favorite charities know what is important to you so your intentions are honored. The Catholic Community Foundation is here to walk beside you in this prayerful process.

  • Will your family member know the importance of a treasured family heirloom?
  • What documents will you need?
  • What are the Catholic teachings related to medical services and cremation?
  • How can you consider your favorite parish, ministry, or charitable organization as “one of your children” in your will?
