The Saint Luigi Guanella Legacy Society

Named in honor of our founder, the Saint Luigi Guanella Legacy Society will comprise individuals who have made a planned gift to The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence.

There are two very easy ways to join the Saint Luigi Guanella Legacy Society. You may simply name The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence in your will, or name us as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy.

There are other ways that can help you realize substantial income tax savings now while ensuring the future of The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence. You can:

  • If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly without having to pay any taxes on the money. This is called an IRA charitable rollover.
  • You can transfer appreciated securities to The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence. The double benefit is that you save on capital gains taxes that are based on appreciation, and also receive a tax deduction for a charitable gift.

We encourage everyone who considers making a planned gift to speak with your financial planner first so that you fully understand the implications a gift would have for you individually. Then, please contact us.

For more information, please contact, Mark Bradford, Senior Director of Philanthropy, here or call 484-472-5059.

The word, legacy, is often used to describe something that is handed down from one generation to the next. The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence have a faith filled spiritual legacy that was handed down to us by our founder Saint Luigi Guanella.

Don Guanella challenged the society of his time to accept individuals with intellectual disabilities as brothers and sisters and as blessings from God.

Individuals who make a planned gift to The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence establish their own legacy.  It is a legacy that will secure the future of Don Guanella and Divine Providence for years to come, and allow us to continue and expand the complex range of services that “God’s Good Children” require and deserve well into the future.
