Grow It Forward

When asked why members joined the Legacy Society, two common themes emerged:

1. To ensure the Lasallian values that were so impactful in their lives can stand the test of time, changing lives for generations to come.

2. To demonstrate their gratitude and support toward a cause they believe in providing a life-changing education experience to all families who seek it.

"Looking over my life made me realize I was proud of how La Salle and Catholic values have helped me through my career and my life. I have served my neighborhood, my city, and my country and look forward to serving now in a different capacity. My husband Joe and I both chose to join the Legacy Society by gifting an endowment fund for female students interested in STEM."

"We had talked about the life insurance gift and decided to place the policy on Mary’s life in order to maximize the value of the gift. It was really very simple and enabled us to give much more than we originally thought we could."

A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) allows us to essentially give our estate value twice, once to our family heirs through annual income distribution from the trust over a specific period and then a second time as a lump sum to our designated charities.Alumni Parents Dennis & Denise Stoecklin
