Legacy Giving to St. John the Divine

Leave your legacy for future generations to continue Changing Lives for God in Christ

For over 80 years, St. John the Divine has benefited from the legacies of those who came before us. Today, we are each building a personal legacy of faith and service that will enrich all who come after us. What will your legacy be?

Have you considered that your legacy can include a financial component as well? By remembering St. John the Divine in your estate plan, you express gratitude for the spiritual and educational gifts you received from St. John the Divine during your lifetime while leaving a legacy for future generations to continue Changing Lives for God in Christ.

“Over the years, we’ve come to truly understand God’s provision and the importance of our tithe to God and His church. We joyfully give “first fruit” to our beloved St. John the Divine by making our tithe to the Sumners Legacy Society the first bequest in our will.”  — Lori & Ted Gobillot

You can continue to support St. John the Divine after your passing by naming the Memorial Endowment Fund as a beneficiary in your estate plan. You can make a gift through:

  • Bequests
  • Annuities
  • Appreciated Assets
  • Life Insurance
  • Memorials
  • Real Estate
  • Retirement Plan/IRA
  • Trusts & Estates

When you make us aware that you have chosen to make a legacy gift, you will become a member of the Sumners Legacy Society. Members of the Legacy Society will be recognized in publications, receive invitations to our annual celebration, and be included by name on the Thomas W. Sumners memorial wall in the Administration Building. Contact Ted Gobillot, SJD chief of staff if you have already made a legacy gift or would like more information.
