Legacy Giving

Estate gifts allow individuals to leave a lasting legacy that will support the mission and ministry of St. Philip the Deacon in perpetuity.

What Will Your Legacy Be?

Individuals who include The St. Philip the Deacon Foundation or St. Philip the Deacon Lutheran Church in their legacy and estate plans not only enjoy real tax benefits, but also have the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to provide ongoing support for the church they love.

Legacy gifts can be left to either directly to the church, in which case the gift will be used for the daily mission and ministry of the congregation, or to the St. Philip the Deacon Foundation, in which case the gift will be protected and—along with the rest of the corpus of the Foundation—will be used to support the congregation’s mission and ministry in perpetuity.

“The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.” - William James
