For over 100 years, Vincentian volunteers and supporters have been making Northern Kentucky a special place to call home for our neighbors in need. By providing food, shelter, clothing and many other gifts, those in need find hope that tomorrow will be a brighter day. Your planned gift will help us fulfill our mission for many years to come.

What is a planned gift and why I should consider planned giving?

Planned gifts are a way that St. Vincent de Paul receives your support now and in the future. A planned gift is any financial gift that takes effect in the future or requires a document such as a will or trust. These types of gifts may provide you with immediate tax benefits during your lifetime. And most importantly, they allow you to demonstrate your values and beliefs to your family and community and leave a lasting legacy.
