The Catholic Foundation of Southwest Iowa Legacy Society consists of invididuals and families that have left a planned gift, in any form, to a Catholic parish, school, organization, or ministry in the Diocese of Des Moines.

If you have left a planned gift to a Catholic parish, school, organization, or ministry in the Diocese of Des Moines, let us know by completing the downloadable form below! Planned gifts include the following:

  • A bequest in a last will and testament, living trust or other estate trust
  • A charitable gift annuity
  • A deferred gift annuity
  • A charitable remainder trust or charitable lead trust
  • An individual retirement account, 401 (K) plan, pension or other retirement plan
  • A life insurance policy
  • Entering into a life estate agreement whereby a “real” property (such as a residence, vacation home, farmland, etc.) is provided as a gift to the diocese and the donor or designee retains the right to live on the property during one’s lifetime
