Bequests (Br. Nilus Cullen, C.F.X. Legacy Society)
Bequests are a simple way to support Mount Saint Joseph and to help provide for its future. Bequests to The Mount may be unrestricted or designated for a particular purpose.
Brother Nilus Cullen, C.F.X., a graduate of the Class of 1931 and teacher at the Mount during the 1930s and '40s, not only contributed years of service to his alma mater, but also shaped what it means to be a Mount man. A pioneer of the Xaverian Brothers' missionary effort in Bolivia, Brother Nilus died there on November 14, 1995.
In naming its planned gift society after Brother Nilus, the Mount hopes to honor the life of an alumnus and Xaverian Brother who was dedicated to service in the name of God.
An increasing number of alumni, parents and friends are setting up special contributions to Mount Saint Joseph High School through deferred giving arrangements. These arrangements include different types of trusts, life insurance gifts and bequests. Deferred gifts are very popular because they can provide guaranteed life income to the donor while still providing the Mount with a significant gift. In response to this growing popularity, the Mount set up a special gift society to honor these donors.
To become a member, simply inform the school's Development Director in writing that you have named Mount Saint Joseph High School as a beneficiary in your financial or estate plans. As a service to the Mount's alumni, parents and friends, the Development Office publishes Issues, a financial and gift planning newsletter. If you would like to begin receiving Issues, or for more information on how you can join the Brother Nilus Cullen, C.F.X. Legacy Society, please contact Emily Rollins, Executive Director of Development, at 410-646-4700.
