75th Anniversary Legacy Challenge

Include Salesian Missions in your estate plan and unlock a special $4,000 donation to be directed to one of the Impact Funds of your choice!

The 75th Anniversary Legacy Challenge is an initiative that provides an immediate cash match for donors who document new or increased planned gift commitments to Salesian Mission.* When you document a planned gift to Salesian Missions, you can direct a $4,000 matching gift to an Impact Fund of interest (Education Impact Fund, Dignity Impact Fund or Relief Impact Fund). Through this challenge, critical program areas of Salesian Missions will feel the impact of your planned gift now, even though Salesian Missions will not receive funds from your planned gift, in most cases, for years to come.

How it Works

Make an impact now by documenting you planned gift today! As of October 1, 2022 there is $300,000 in matching funds available on a first come first served basis to any donor who documents a planned gift. The 75th Anniversary Challenge will end in March 2023, or when the matching funds have been depleted.

Why the 75th Anniversary Salesian Missions Legacy Challenge?

The Legacy Challenge Campaign will begin in October 2022, and end in March 2023, or when the $300,000 in available funds are used up.
