Planned giving

St. Francis of Assisi Parish works with the Diocese of Colorado Springs and offers two planned gift programs to help make a charitable gift that will last well into the future. Please consider making a charitable contribution by giving to the Catholic Legacy Society.

The Catholic Legacy Society honors those who have named their parish, a Catholic school, Catholic Charities, or other ministries of the Diocese of Colorado Springs as a beneficiary in their will or trust, retirement account, charitable gift annuity or charitable trust, life insurance policy, or through the establishment of an endowment fund.

The Diocese of Colorado Springs knows that estate planning can be overwhelming and expensive. In the spirit of providing accessible resources to support your future, we want to share this free will-writing tool. This resource allows you to write a legal will for free, in 20 minutes or less, and be used with an attorney for more complex estates or needs. With this tool you can ensure that your assets go to the people and causes you love. Take the time now to begin the process that can powerfully impact the lives of your family, friends, and parish.


The Diocese is grateful to acknowledge these special benefactors during their lifetimes. And, in conjunction with our mission, this special society provides an opportunity for benefactors to make their philanthropy a perpetual legacy for themselves and an example for their families. It also creates an infrastructure of support that makes our parishes, schools, and ministries stronger, sustainable and better equipped to reach future generations.
