Join the Legacy Circle

Legacy Circle

When you remember the sisters through your will or estate plan, you will be recognized as a member of the sisters’ Legacy Circle. This group celebrates those whose vision and generosity help secure our sisters’ future. Members are also perpetually enrolled in our sisters Prayer List.

Give Wisely

We recommend that you seek the advice of your tax advisor, attorney, and/or financial planner to ensure that the gift you are considering fits your overall circumstances and planning.

Through your will or living trust, you can leave assets to loved ones and to the Sisters of St. Francis in various ways.

You can give:

  • A specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate
  • What remains after other bequests have been made
  • A conditional gift if your beneficiaries pre-decease you.

To add the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities as a charitable beneficiary of your existing will, ask your attorney about a codicil to make a simple update:

Sample Language for your will:

I give to the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities, 960 James Street, Syracuse NY 13203 [specific dollar amount or percentage of my estate or specified asset].
I give to the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities, 960 James Street, Syracuse NY 13203 all [or a percentage] of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate.
If [other named beneficiary] does not survive me, I give to the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities, 960 James Street, Syracuse NY 13203 all [or a percentage] of my estate.
