Will or Trust Provisions

By including the CEC in your will or trust, you reduce the taxable portion of your estate by the full amount of your gift and guarantee that this unique institution continues to thrive well into the future. To make a bequest to the CEC, you must prepare a new will or add a codicil to your present will. To ensure that your exact intentions are carried out, wills, codicils, trusts, or amendments should be prepared by, or with the advice of, your attorney. 

Unrestricted bequests or trust provisions permit the CEC to use your gift wherever it is most needed; restricted bequests or trust provisions underwrite the CEC activities in areas of greatest interest to you.  If you're thinking about making a restricted gift, please consult with the CEC in order to ensure that our strategic priorities align with your interests. 

Suggested language for making an unrestricted gift by will or trust

  • "I give [the sum of ________ dollars] [all or __________ percent of the residuary of my estate] to the Center for Evangelical Catholicism, 111 Hampton Avenue, Greenville, SC."
