Thank You, Teresa!

Meaningful messages from appreciative recipients of our assistance are always touching and ground us in our Mission of Mercy. Messages from loyal supporters are equally meaningful and sometimes even magical!

Magical and memorable in our Centennial year was the day we received a phone call from 92-year-old Teresa's son who happily shared that his mother had been adopted from the agency that many years ago. The gratitude expressed by Teresa's son was palpable as he shared his mother's desire to give an immediate gift as well as a legacy gift of appreciation. The immediate gift would come from interest received from an annuity, and the legacy gift would be the remainder funds from the annuity itself.

Gift intentions like Teresa's serve to fund the most pressing needs of those in our care both now and in years to come. Teresa's appreciation of the loving family she found through CCS sparked her joy in giving back and helping ensure that other infants and children will experience a loving, fulfilling life.

With 175 programs and services at Catholic Community Services and Catholic Housing Services, your legacy gift intentions can be tailored to the social causes that touch your heart.
