Planned Giving

Giving towards the future

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church depends on gifts from friends like you. Through a planned gift, you can support our ministries and mission today, with cash or stock for example, or design a plan as part of your estate that benefits us after your lifetime. 

We invite you to leave a legacy that will grow and benefit future generations.  It’s this simple: Complete a review of your will, living trust or other retirement arrangement and include the St. Andrew's Episcopal Church as a charitable beneficiary.  

Then, select the Endowment of your choice and notify the parish office.

When you extend your support this way, you will ensure that your family and friends can rely on St. Andrew's for years to come. 

  • Flexibility. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
  • Versatility. You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to us.
  • Tax Relief. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift's full value.

For more information about charitable estate planning, please contact Jay Whipple, Treasurer, 312-560-6810 or email: Jay3@me.com.


Our Endowments

The St. Andrew's Operating Endowment 

The St. Andrew's Operating Endowment  was established to ensure that our parish mission continues to be vibrant, active and successful for future generations. Financial support to this endowment equips the daily administrative and ministry needs of the parish.  Support maintains the resources we need to share the gospel with those in need.  It is the gospel message which forever changes hearts, and provides healing and gives encouragement to the hurting.


The St. Andrew's Legacy Endowment

A Future of Higher Purpose

The St. Andrew's Legacy Endowment was established to provide richer pastoral care, more outreach and assistance, and a full parish experience which can meet even more of life's challenging and rewarding later phases.  

Supporters of the St. Andrew's Legacy Endowment will join a special coterie of parishioners as members of The Bishop William Gray Society, in recognition of their desire to pass on a vision of higher purpose that they will share with our founder, Bishop William Crane Gray.

We intend that The Bishop William Gray Society will become an enduring foundation of life within St. Andrew's.

St. Andrew's will always be grateful for any and all gifts, large or small, current or deferred.  The St. Andrew's Legacy Endowment is all about the entire parish coming together for our future and our legacy.
