My bequest is a gift of help, hope and care
“I am grateful to be able to make a bequest to the Catholic Caring Foundation in my Will. I know that our bishop’s heart goes out to the poor and vulnerable who will always be with us. So does mine, but I do not always know how best or wisely I can help those in greatest need. I have decided that by leaving my “widow’s mite”, small though it is, to the Catholic Caring Foundation, it can be added to the gifts that others make.
Together, we will be able to ensure that help, hope and care may continue to be given to those most in need in years to come.”
A Foundation supporter who has left a bequest in their Will to the Catholic Caring Foundation.
My Will, as a Catholic
“It was important for me to plan my Will, and I strongly endorse the work of the Catholic Caring Foundation.
I am particularly happy to encourage other people, especially women who traditionally may have had less choice over their discretionary income.
When it comes to making a Will, they may now feel more empowered about choosing their charity. For me, it is the Catholic Caring Foundation.”
