Gifts and Bequests

DESCRIPTION

Donations made to the church by people – or organisations – during their lifetime or through their will.

 FUNCTION

Gratuities, gifts and bequests assist the church in carrying out its work.

 POLICY

GIFTS            It is helpful if the donor makes the purpose of the donation clear but not too restrictive. Gifts are                         tax deductible and receipts will be furnished.

BEQUESTS   A simple form of bequest which may be used in a will is – ‘I give and bequeath the sum of $ ......                        to the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Hamilton for the general purposes of the said                            diocese.’

                    While general bequests are preferred, a person may nominate a particular purpose for the bequest,                      in the will.
