Many people have asked if there are other ways they can help Capuchin Retreat in its ministry of spirituality and hospitality. Here are some ways available.

A Gift through Your Will - Making a bequest in your will is a great way to leave a gift when your current situation leaves you on a tight budget and unable to make gifts during your lifetime.
A Gift Annuity - When you make a contribution towards a gift annuity, you will receive income for life, a charitable income tax deduction, in addition to making a gift to Capuchin Retreat.
A Gift of Life Insurance - When you name Capuchin Retreat as the beneficiary of your life insurance (or as a co-beneficiary), you can make a wonderful gift by making modest insurance premium payments during your lifetime.

Honor or Tribute Gifts - You may make a donation to Capuchin Retreat on special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries or holidays. Also, "In Memory Gifts" are received most often in the passing of a loved one. With these types of donations, we will send a letter to those you designate to notify them of your gift in their honor.

If you would like to discuss with Fr. Tom (Director) inclusion of Capuchin Retreat in your will or future financial planning, please email Father Tom or call 248-651-4826

Thank you for your generosity....
