Make a lasting gift to The Pilot
One of the simplest ways you can support The Pilot is by naming The PIlot in your will. This type of gift costs you nothing during your lifetime and will enable The Pilot to benefit from the full amount of your bequest gift that might otherwise go to federal estate taxes.
How to make a bequest
A planned gift to The Pilot will help sustain our future work of sharing the Good News of the Church as we provide readers, listeners and viewers with easier access to Catholic news.
Below is some sample wording for you to include in making your bequest to The Pilot.
“I give and devise the sum [written dollar amount or percentage of the estate] to iCatholic Media, Inc., a Massachusetts charitable corporation, as it does business as The Pilot for the general purposes, operations and improvements of The Pilot.”
We suggest you contact your attorney to draft or update your will, or ask your attorney to contact us. Because each bequest is unique, we can help define the appropriate wording to allow your lasting and generous gift to have the greatest impact.
