Legacy Planning: Leave Your Legacy Through a Bequest

Posted on January 17, 2022 by Published by

As we begin the New Year, please consider one of the greatest acts of stewardship an individual can make by including a gift to our parish in your will or trust. A bequest can be made to our parish using the following language:

“I give [insert specific dollar amount, or percentage of net or residuary] to The Catholic Bishop of Chicago, Tax ID #36-2170826, a corporation sole located in Chicago, Illinois, to be used for the benefit of Our Lady of the Wayside Parish located in Arlington Heights, Illinois. However, if Our Lady of the Wayside ceases to exist in its current form, then to the new parish or parishes erected in its stead.”
Please consult an attorney and financial advisor when drafting your will or trust.

For more information, please contact Krystina M. Campbell, Planned Giving Officer, Archdiocese of Chicago at 312.534.5404 or
