Looking Back and Planning Ahead
In 1936 my family had five students in St. Mary's Academy at Alton, Iowa. My parents paid $25 for their tuition. The farm didn't produce a thing that year because of the drought. The farmers all donated food to the Sisters—meat, eggs and potatoes. Later our daughter enjoyed a fine education at Briar Cliff University in Sioux City.
Since then the good Lord has blessed us many times over and it's time to say thanks! We have chosen to remember the Sisters of St. Francis in our estate plan by naming them as a partial beneficiary of our IRA. This brochure shows the great benefit of donating to nonprofit charities in this manner.
