Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund is called “Beacon of Hope” in order to reflect the boundless hope that Catholic Schools afford to children throughout the Diocese of Albany. Moreover, the name reflects the hope that generous donors guarantee to future generations by giving to the fund.

Planned Giving

What is Planned Giving?

Planned Giving is not just for the wealthy! This is a big misconception as there are many vehicles to make a difference through planned giving. Planned giving is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. Although they require some planning and, often, help from professional advisors, planned gifts are easy to make. These gifts come to fruition upon your death, leaving your cash and assets open to you for use during your lifetime.

There are many giving options to choose from to help ensure a solid future for our schools. The Catholic Schools Office offers many opportunities to help you support the mission of education.

The most common planned gift is a bequest in your will or living trust. Other planned gifts include: retirement plan assets, life insurance policies, Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts, an endowment fund, a remainder trust in your home, Charitable Lead Trust.
