Planned Giving

Planned Giving to Our Lady Queen of Martyrs

Thank you for your gracious support of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church. May we invite you to confer our Church in your planned future giving?

We wish to remind our parishioners of the tax advantages of naming our Church as a beneficiary in our retirement plans. Jeanne Farnan Mulry of the Catholic Foundation assists parishes in their ministry of serving God’s people. She can assist you. You may also speak directly with Bishop Sanchez or Father Passenant at the rectory (718-268-6251). As always, we are grateful for your support and prayers.

You can make a legacy gift to your church.

Leave a Lasting Legacy with a Gift from Your Retirement Plan

All IRAs, 401Ks and other retirement plans have beneficiary pages. Because leaving these plans to children can result in a large percentage going to taxes, you may want to consider naming the parish endowment fund as a beneficiary of your retirement plan. It will be a charitable gift so no taxes are due on the gift. You can even leave just a percentage of the retirement plan to the parish endowment fund.
