Your Legacy

YOU can make a difference and ensure LCCC’s mission and services for generations to come by naming Livingston County Catholic Charities in your Will, Trust or other Planned Giving options while still benefiting you and your loved ones! Livingston County Catholic Charities Tax Id #38-2570420.

All donations stay right here in Livingston County.

Legacy Options Include

  • Charitable Bequests – A lasting legacy through your Will, Trust or Estate. Leaving a Charitable Bequest in your Will or Trust makes it easy to help Livingston County Catholic Charities provide aid for our county’s most vulnerable for generations to come without dipping into your current income or savings.  You can make a lasting commitment to serving the under-served and disadvantaged men, women and children of Livingston County.   Honor a friend or loved one or honor your legacy for years to come through a Charitable Bequest!
  • Make a “Tax Free” Gift Through Your IRA – The IRA Charitable Rollover is now permanent!  The IRA Charitable Rollover allows anyone 70 1/2 years of age to make a gift by transferring up to $100,000/year per person directly to your favorite charity.  Speak with your financial adviser or accountant for full details. For more information on the SECURE Act, review the IRS's webpage on RMD's and Charitable Rollovers.
