Sacred Heart Foundation

Celebrating 50 Years 1967-2017

SHF-heartofgoldThe Sacred Heart Foundation of Watertown, New York is a tax-exempt corporation and qualifies as a recipient of charitable contributions that offer tax advantages to the donor.

We encourage your lasting support of the Foundation through a planned gift. Gifts of this kind enable the Foundation to continue the work of educating priests and religious of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. As the endowment of the Foundation grows, so does our financial support of these individuals in their formation.

The Foundation’s  Heart of Gold Campaign, underway now, has a goal of adding $500,000 to the endowment by the organization’s 50th anniversary in 2017.

The Foundation is blessed when a supporter makes the decision to remember the Foundation in the distribution of his or her assets.  The final remembrance can be in one or more forms.

The most frequently used planned giving opportunities are:

  • Cash bequest through a will
  • A bequest in the form of a gift of stock, bonds or real estate
  • Naming the Foundation as beneficiary of an IRA or retirement plan in a fixed amount or percentage
  • Naming the Foundation as sole beneficiary or one of several beneficiaries of a life insurance policy
  • By establishing  a gift annuity for the Foundation. This is accomplished by establishing a sum of money which is used to pay the donor a life annuity and, upon death, the principal accrues to the Foundation.

Your attorney, accountant or financial advisor can assist you in identifying the most appropriate arrangements for your planned gift to the Foundation. Our staff and Board representatives are also available to direct you to more information on planned giving opportunities. Please contact the Sacred Heart Foundation at (315) 782-3344 or any Foundation Board member you may know.
