Planned Giving Overview

Your Christ the King Legacy

Making a gift for the benefit our Church after you are gone is a wonderful way to create a lasting legacy and ensure that the faith life you and your family have received will be there for generations to come.

For more info or to answer your questions about a possible gift, please phone or e-mail Bill Hare at 214-365-1200 or

Christ the King Catholic Church has established a permanent fund that is uniquely ours which will provide annual support for our facilities as well as funds for our programs and operating expenses. You can specify that your gift is added to The Christ the King Parish Trust Fund, EIN#75-6511053, or for a specific need at the church.

Easy Planning Options

Bequest from Your Will or Living Trust – You can easily make a charitable gift of a specific dollar amount, percentage of your estate/trust, a certain asset or make the Christ the King Parish Trust Fund a “residual beneficiary”. In addition to a very generous charitable gift, your trust or estate receives an estate tax deduction as well. Click here for more information on bequests and specific wording options that may be appropriate for your will or trust.

Beneficiary Designation from a Retirement Plan – By designating the Christ the King Parish Trust Fund as a beneficiary of your IRA or retirement plan, you support important our work and avoid both estate and income tax. All that‘s required is to name “Christ the King Catholic Church for the benefit of the Christ the King Parish Trust Fund” as beneficiary for a portion or all of your IRA or qualified retirement plan.

Charitable Gift of a Life Insurance Policy – You can assign whole life insurance policies and name “Christ the King Catholic Church for the benefit of the Christ the King Parish Trust Fund” as beneficiary. In return for your generosity, in most cases you receive a tax deduction for the premiums you have paid on the policy.
