Other Ways to Give

Create a lasting legacy!

Thanks to the remarkable generosity of many benefactors, the Salesian Sisters continue to be a powerful force for good in society, especially for today’s youth.  Planned gifts have immense potential to sustain and increase the Salesian Sisters' mission while offering exceptional financial benefits for our benefactors. Gifts of cash, specific property, estate shares, stocks, life insurance policies, or retirement plans are some of the most common options. If you are including the Salesian Sisters in your planned giving, you may choose to notify us of your gift. This maximizes the capacity of your gift intentions and enables us to recognize your generosity during your lifetime.

The Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco has partnered with My Catholic Will to allow you to easily pass on your Catholic faith through writing your Will. You can create your legal Will in as little as 15 minutes for FREE and have the opportunity to provide a Legacy Gift to the Salesian Sisters.

Please visit https://mycatholicwill.com/salesiansisters to start your Will today.
