Leave a legacy through the NMCF

Leave a Legacy

Throughout your life, you accumulate assets to support yourself, your family, your community, and the charities closest to your heart. As a Catholic steward, your past and present gifts are benefiting your parish, school and programs within the Diocese of Gaylord. Just as you control the distribution of your assets throughout your lifetime, a will, trust, or other estate planning document provides you with the same control and an ability to create a lasting legacy into the future.  These bequests return to God the first fruits of your labor, as estate planning is as much of a stewardship of your assets as are your weekly offerings. If you would like more information on how to remember your parish, school, the Diocese of Gaylord or a particular diocesan ministry in your estate plans through the NMCF, please contact Patrick Schaffler, NMCF Executive Director at 231.922.9070 or
