In Gratitude Legacy Circle


The In Gratitude Legacy Circle was created by the Corpus Christi Foundation to thank and recognize those individuals who wish to remember the Holland Catholic Community in their estate planning.

Estate planning is an important task for EVERYONE to complete – no matter age, income, or assets.  A properly drawn estate plan and will are some of the most important documents we will ever have.  It insures that your wishes with respect to your family are carried out as you choose.

You also have a family of faith.  With a will, you can express the importance of your faith by providing for the charitable distribution of some of your assets to our local parishes of St. Francis de Sales or Our Lady of the Lake, Corpus Christi Catholic School, or the endowment program of the Corpus Christi Foundation.  By remembering your Catholic community in your estate planning, you can make a thoughtful gesture to thank God for the many blessings in this life, and for the faith that sustained you.

To become a member of the In Gratitude Legacy Circleyou simply need to notify us your plans to include St. Francis de Sales, Corpus Christi Catholic School, Our Lady of the Lake, or Corpus Christi Foundation in your planned giving, or that you have already done so.  This can easily be accomplished by sending in the “Letter of Intent for a Legacy Gift” (click the link below and print the form) and send it to the Corpus Christi Foundation, 195 West 13 Street, Holland, MI  49423, or return it by email to  If you would like more information, please contact us via telephone at 616-399-1062 extension 223, or via email at

Letter of Intent for a Legacy Gift

The “Letter of Intent for a Legacy Gift” is not a legal document.  You must make the changes in your estate documents with the assistance of your estate attorney or financial advisor, depending on the form in which your bequest is made.  The “Letter of Intent for a Legacy Gift” is submitted to inform us that you have done so.  We don’t need legal documentation at this point, nor do we need to know amounts. Any amount is valued.  We just want the opportunity to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made.

We give today to bless others in the future…

May God bless you always.  Thank you for your consideration.
