PLANNED GIVING - When the golden age of retirement begins, planning is refocused from wealth accumulation to supplementing your income during retirement – wealth distribution. For many, social security eligibility is the first indicator that this shift is taking place. For others, milestones such as reaching a long-anticipated financial goal or experiencing a significant life event mark the shift from accumulation to income planning.
Fortunately, there are philanthropic strategies using life income gifts that can assist retirees by providing income during retirement. Life income gifts offer flexible planning opportunities that provide income payments while meeting specific planning goals.- Charitable Giving Strategies
Catholic Charities Indianapolis remains committed to providing quality care and services that bring hope for the future to the least among us. All the efforts of the Catholic Charities Indianapolis staff are guided by the mission, values and vision of being advocates for peace and social justice, based on the teachings of the Gospel. We support the dignity of all individuals and families and wish to strengthen those we serve through empowerment.
Catholic Charities Indianapolis programs serve the elderly, the poor, the hungry, the homeless and those in crisis. In this past year we embraced the spirit of our supporters and used that energy to uphold the excellence of our programming and to serve more individuals in the community, assisting more than 33,000. Among those served, the majority are families with children who live at or below the federal poverty level. We must continue to encourage this population and assist with their care and well being.
The Refugee and Immigrant Services of Catholic Charities Indianapolis is helping hundreds of families this year in Indianapolis. Program staff are responsible for setting up an entire household for them: beds and linens, cookware and serving ware, furniture, etc. Contact Ethan Irbe for more information at email@example.com or 236-1499.
Volunteers are needed with trucks to pick-up and deliver household furniture and vehicles to transport clients to/from appointments.
