Leave a Legacy

By including IOCC in your estate planning, you will leave a lasting legacy.

St. Basil Left A Legacy. You Can Too.

The St. Basil Society honors and recognizes the generosity and vision of those who have chosen to leave a legacy of compassion to the world through IOCC.

Charitable planning is one of the best ways to make a long-term investment which benefits so many people who are praying for help from someone. You can be that someone for years to come with a legacy gift.

To enroll in this honorary society, simply advise IOCC that you created a legacy gift such as:

  • a bequest in a will or living trust.
  • a charitable gift annuity.
  • a charitable remainder trust.
  • designation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.

Once you have provided for your loved ones, know that whatever you designate to IOCC will bring hope to hundreds of people, along with a chance for them to have healthier, happier lives. That’s a blessed legacy.

Please pray about this decision . And know there are many ways to remember IOCC in your estate plans – all of which help people in need through charitable humanitarian acts.

Whether you use cash or other assets, such as real estate, securities or a life insurance policy, the benefits of charitable planning through IOCC can make this type of giving beneficial for you as well as those served through IOCC's humanitarian programs.

Ready to act right now?

Please designate IOCC in your estate plans. Become part of our legacy society named in honor of St. Basil the Great.

St. Basil the Great is renowned for his acts of philanthropy, including the establishment of the first orphanage in human history, the first Christian hospital, and homes for the elderly. His compassion for children, the poor, the elderly, the sick, and the oppressed is a model for the work of IOCC in its ministry to people in need throughout the world.

Regardless of how you plan for the distribution of your estate, we urge you to prepare a will. A will gives YOU control over what happens to your property and investments. Without it, the laws of the state where you reside decide who receives what and how much.

If you have already included IOCC in your estate, please contact IOCC by calling our toll free number 1-877-803-4622 and ask to speak with the Director of Development

When IOCC receives a signed letter of intent, or an outright gift to the endowment from you, you’re entitled to the designation of St. Basil Society Member. Thank you so very much, for making a lasting difference and for creating a unique legacy of your own through planned giving.
