The Mosaic Society was formed in 1997 to recognize and thank members and friends who have included St. Bart’s in their estate plans.
On June 8th, Mosaic Society members gathered for a festive lunch and celebration, including a warm return and presentation by the Reverend Canon Buddy Stallings. The following members were honored for their service and generosity to St. Bart's through the years and are our 2023 Mosaic Award recipients. See photos here.
For anyone inspired to leave a legacy gift to St. Bart's, a will or testamentary trust will fulfill this purpose. A will outlines the use and distribution of your assets after your death, including providing for your family/heirs, managing your taxes and expenses, and establishing specific bequests to St. Bart’s and other organizations as charitable beneficiaries. A will can be created with the assistance of your attorney and through an online, free resource such as FreeWill.
You may choose to name St. Bart’s as receiving a percentage share of your total assets or as a direct beneficiary of specific assets such as a life insurance policy, IRA, qualified retirement plan, or revocable and irrevocable trusts. Noting St. Bartholomew’s Church in the City of New York as the beneficiary on the account is all that it takes. Most retirement plans will ask you to complete a beneficiary designation form. You simply list St. Bartholomew’s Church in the City of New York as the beneficiary on the form. The form will ask for a tax ID number.
