Gift in your Will or Trust

Your Catholic faith has shaped your life and has provided guidance, strength, and hope. By living your faith you are a witness to your family, friends, and community.

Watch this video: Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, explains how to create a will for free and why it is so important.

The Marian Fathers have partnered with FreeWill to offer a secure and simple way for you to create a legacy that honors your life of faith forever. When you use this self-guided online tool, you can make or update your plans in as little as 20 minutes.

Create your legacy of faith


  • You take care of your loved ones first.
  • Your gift can be a percentage of your estate (or what's left after you take care of family and friends) so it will vary in size with financial ups and downs.
  • You are free to remove or change your gift during your life.
  • You can make your gift in honor or memory of someone who has inspired you.
  • The Marian Fathers will offer Holy Masses for you and remember you in the daily Mass and prayers offered for the members of our spiritual benefit society, the Association of Marian Helpers.

If you would like to work with an attorney, you can use FreeWill to document your wishes beforehand and save yourself time and money.

Your attorney will need the following information to identify us:
Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of the B.V.M., a not-for-profit corporation organized under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and having its principal office at 2 Prospect Hill Road, P.O. Box 716, Stockbridge, MA 01262.

Have you already included the Marians in your estate plan? If so, please fill out this short form to let us know so that we may have the joy of thanking you! We would also like to send you a helpful booklet called Important Personal Records and A Letter to My Loved Ones as a token of our gratitude.
