St. Michael the Archangel Parish in Glen Allen was one of three pilot parishes to work with Maggie F. Keenan, Ed.D. on developing their legacy giving program. The pilot program ran from September 2017 to June 2018. Since then, St. Michael’s developed their 5 year legacy giving program plan with Maggie and rolled out the year #1 plan, 2018-2019. Because they achieved the goals they set for this past year, the parish is recognized as Bronze Status with the Foundation! The parish’s legacy giving committee is dedicated and very committed its success.
This past April, St. Michael’s hosted the first Lumen Christi Legacy Society Parish Chapter event recognizing and thanking those parishioners who made a provision in their estate plans by naming St. Michael’s as a beneficiary. While each parishioner’s commitment is confidential, they share the same love for the parish to leave a lasting gift. All bequests received to St. Michael’s will go into the parish endowment fund. The fund remains in perpetuity to the benefit of the parish.
