Planned Gifts

Planned Giving

St. Sebastian Parish Foundation relies on the generosity of our community to help secure a stable future for our parish for generations. Because of the generous gifts to The St. Sebastian Parish Foundation, we are able to help ensure that the traditions of St. Sebastian Parish continue for many years to come.

Your donation will make a real difference, with a measurable impact to our faith community and enable the Foundation to support St. Sebastian Parish, such as our buildings, facilities and grounds, even our teachers and students. No gift is too big or too small and all donations are tax deductible.
