Please contact the Office of Advancement at (973) 627-6674 for specific directions when making a gift of securities.

Life Income Gift:

There are many ways that an individual can make a gift to Morris Catholic and receive income for life in return. Through one of a number of planned gift options, the donor can place cash, securities, or other assets in trust, for example, and continue to receive income from the trust.

These life-income gifts often provide income as well as capital gains and/or estate tax benefits.

Donors should consult with tax advisors as well as legal and financial professionals regarding applicable federal and state tax law and to determine which planned giving vehicle best suits their estate plans. Morris Catholic is a 501(c)3, tax-exempt, non-profit charitable organization.
