Legacy Society

Church of Our Saviour

Establishes Legacy Society

 

Are you a member of a legacy society – your school, a hospital? Now Church of Our Saviour (COS) is establishing our own legacy society. It will be fully implemented by the end of the end of 2017. From this page of our website you may download helpful information

Our Legacy Society will be composed of those persons who have provided for COS by a bequest in their will to leave a specific amount of money or percentage of the remainder of their estate after expenses. Folks may also convey stocks and bonds, and, through our diocesan stewardship office, we can provide specific assistance.

Why now? Our sister, Sue McKibbin, has provided for a bequest to COS in her will. It’s a great reminder to the rest of us to do the same. Sue also shared information about her desires regarding a funeral service. At the bottom of this page you will find a link to download a helpful guide. When completed provide copies to your immediate family members and to COS; we keep this confidential information under lock and key.

By September 10th, you may download from here the information form to register as a member of the COS Legacy Society. No information about the amount of your gift is requested. When you complete the registration form, you will become a member of the COS Legacy Society and your name will be added to a plaque which will be mounted in a somewhat prominent place (if you wish to remain anonymous to others, that’s fine as well). Those who register within the next six months will become “Founding Members” with Sue as our very first. In addition, you will become a member of the Bishop’s Society of our Diocese of Olympia – your bequest stays here in your own congregation unless you specifically make a bequest to the Diocese of Olympia.

You can expect us to have an annual gathering to thank those who have provided for their church.
