Making a legacy gift is a powerful witness of faith, love and gratitude. This type of gift recognizes the heritage left by those who came before us and acknowledge that we bear a responsibility to future generations to ensure the continuation of God’s work in the Episcopal Church of Colorado.

When you are ready to leave your gift of love to your Church or in support of an Episcopal Institution, the Foundation is here to offer cost-free, personalized, technical and spiritual care in helping you administer and carry out your gift.

Legacy gifts state that I believe my Church should continue into the future, as an expression of what has meaning in my life and my bridge to the next generation.
