Gift planning provides the opportunity to make a substantial philanthropic impact while maintaining assets for your family. Planned giving is often referred to as “legacy giving,” as the most common type of planned gift is a bequest from a donor’s estate.
There are a variety of ways to make a planned gift, including but not limited to: bequests, Charitable Gift Annuities, gifts of stock, and donor Donor Advised Funds (DAFs).

Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is an account set up for the sole purpose of making charitable gifts. The donor takes the tax deduction for the year in which money is deposited into the account, not when the gift is made to the non-profit organization.
The Peter Claver Society
Named in honor of St. Peter Claver, S.J., Jesuit priest and missionary known as the “Patron Saint of Slaves,” the society recognizes the friends who have thoughtfully included CTK in their estate plans.
We are grateful to the members of The Peter Claver Society for their indelible commitment to the mission and work of Christ the King Jesuit College Prep.
