Is Giving One of Your Resolutions This Year?

 

Here Are 5 Guidelines to Help You Reach Your Goals

 

The start of a new year often brings with it a list of goals people would like to accomplish in the coming twelve months. Such a list can include a desire to be more charitable, to volunteer more, or even to learn a new skill.

If you have resolved to be more generous this year, here are five guidelines to help you reach your goals.        

1          Reflect on key experiences and influences in your life when deciding where to give. Supporting the places and organizations that have impacted you ensures they will be just as vital for others in the future.

2          Study the best methods for making donations. There are many ways you can give, even if you can’t part with assets today, including the option of making a gift in your estate plan. Explore your giving options to make sure you choose those that are right for you.

3         And so, make charitable giving a part of your estate plan, a simple and heartfelt way to ensure your support continues for generations to come.

4          Encourage others to give. You can inspire others to give simply by doing so yourself. Set an example for your children, and encourage others to join you.

5          Consider your financial responsibility to your family as you design your charitable giving. When you support the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge, you needn’t raise questions about any loved one’s security. Look for ways you can give that are sensitive to their needs, as well. We can help.

 

For additional information on the many ways you can support your Catholic Diocese, please contact the Office of Stewardship, 225-242-0108, to learn more. Discover how you and your gifts can provide healthy spiritual blessings to many for years to come.

Stewardship Today is a monthly devotional newsletter designed to assist Catholics everywhere in developing a greater understanding of the role of stewardship in everyday life.
All we are, and all we possess, are gifts from God for our use and for the blessing of others. Through wise stewardship, we invest our time, our talents and our treasures to the glory of God.
