Planned Gifts

When you include Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan in your future giving or estate plans, you can achieve your long-term financial and philanthropic objectives and continue to make a difference in the lives of those in need for years to come.

Gift planning can include making a bequest through your will or trust, naming CCSEM as a beneficiary of retirement plans or life insurance policies, or making an IRA charitable rollover (Qualified Charitable Distribution).

We can assist with considering your charitable giving interests and ways to apply your contribution to programs or areas that are important to you. For more information, please contact Chief Development Officer Patricia Brosnahan, at 586-416-2300 x 4015 or
