A Gift That Honors a Life
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Trinity Missions, establishing a Living Memorial is a meaningful way to honor your loved one while supporting our work at the same time. The Living Memorial will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
What makes a Living Memorial so unique is that the money that is donated is invested. The principal is never touched. The interest generated is used to support Trinity Missions. You can choose to have the interest support our missionary work, or for the education of our seminarians. It is a gift that keeps on giving!
Check Out This Potential Scenario
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime she often heard him praise Trinity Missions for its tireless work among poor and abandoned people throughout the United States and Latin America. Wanting to honor her father in a special way, Sarah decided to make a gift to Trinity Missions in his name using appreciated securities. She was able to name this special fund in memory of her father, which was very important to her. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Trinity Missions thanks to her special gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities. Additionally, she and her family can continue to donate to this special fund set up in memory of her father for many years to come.
