Planned Gifts


Planned Giving to benefit the Newman Catholic Center…a wonderful way to leave your legacy and ensure effective ministry into perpetuity

• Bequests – a gift to benefit Newman in your will is a fitting and valued and lasting tribute for you and your family. For a specific ministry of Newman or an unrestricted bequest, your generosity and remarkable stewardship will be greatly appreciated and will live on through the lives of the students that are touch by your generosity

• Charitable Gift annuities – single and double annuities are available with a minimum contribution.

• An IRA transfer is a method of transferring the assets in your IRA to benefit the programs and services offered at Newman. Oftentimes, this type of gift avoids income tax consequences.

• Year End Giving – especially at the end of the calendar year we are searching for that tax shelter. Donating to Newman gives you that benefit and assists in ensuring that vital ministerial opportunities are available to our students and the communities we serve.

It is important that when you are considering a planned gift to Newman
that you contact and work with your tax consultant.

The Newman Catholic Center, located on the UMass Amherst campus, serves the students, faculty, and staff
of the University and the Five College area through events, worship, prayer, community service, and special happenings.
