Life Events Impact Your Legacy Decisions

February 22, 2021

Births, death, marriage, divorce. Chances are, if you live long enough you will experience several life events, and you'll need to update your documents after each change.

In addition to creating a free and legal will using the Catholic Foundation's custom site, you can document your end-of-life healthcare wishes with this Advance Healthcare Directive and safeguard financial decisions by utilizing this free gift of a Durable Financial Power of Attorney.

Creating a bequest in your will for the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso is a powerful statement in your legacy, and costs you nothing today. If you’ve supported the Catholic Foundation in the past, a bequest can advance our mission to support diocesan parishes, schools and ministries for generations to come, while being a part of your lasting legacy.

A charitable bequest creates a foundation for the future. Our work today is important, but it is equally, if not more important to be sure that the work of the Catholic Foundation can continue well into the future.

Visit to get started today! The giving platform will walk you through each step, and is designed to make the process as easy and fast as possible. FreeWill can also be used with more complicated estates by generating a list of documented wishes that can be brought to an attorney.
