Ignatian Heritage Society

With gratitude we invite you to become a member of the Ignatian Heritage Society of The USA East Province Province of the Society of Jesus and join others who want to create a legacy for their families and further the Jesuit mission to improve the lives of people here and around the globe through planned giving.

Working with you or your advisers, we can help you meet both your personal planning and charitable giving objectives. By joining the Ignatian Heritage Society now, you provide the Jesuits with the opportunity to thank you during your lifetime and steer your gifts in the way you intended.

We can show you a variety of tax-effective ways to include Jesuits in your estate plan:


You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible way that you can support our cause.

Have your adviser review the following language:
"I bequeath (a percentage of your estate or a specific amount) to the Society of Jesus."

Retirement Plan

Gifting the Jesuits with an IRA, 401 (k), 403 (b) or pension plan may reduce your income and estate taxes.

We can show you how to designate the Society of Jesus as a beneficiary of all or part of the proceeds of your life insurance policies.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

We can provide you and your advisers with estimates of the income and tax benefits of making gifts of cash, stock, or real estate to a charitable trust.
