Planned Giving: The Trinity Charter Society

You can continue your legacy, as so many have before you, by leaving a gift to Trinity in your will or by making a planned gift. Gifts to Trinity come in all sizes and from many different types of people. The common wish for all gifts is that they be used by Trinity for good. Your legacy to Trinity can carry on good works for years to come.


For more than 300 years, Trinity Wall Street has been a spiritual center in Lower Manhattan, serving as a place of worship and helping to create, inspire, and fund good works throughout the city, the nation, and the world.

In 1705, Trinity received one of its first gifts, a grant from Queen Anne of a large parcel of land on the west side of Manhattan. Trinity still owns some of this original grant, and throughout the years, revenues from the land have been used to fund Trinity’s programs and mission work.

As you have given gifts to God throughout your life, consider making a gift to Trinity in your will or as another type of planned gift. In addition to supporting the parish’s ministry and mission, planned gifts are a unique way to express your personal values, continue the stewardship of your life, and leave a lasting impact on the lives of others.

Over the years, thousands of parishioners and friends have left gifts to Trinity. The parish has a trusted history of using these bequests to give back to those in need and to assist those working to make the world a better place. Since its beginnings, Trinity has started, endowed, or aided more than 1,700 churches, schools, hospitals, and other institutions. Gifts honor Trinity’s long history and provide for the church’s commitment to the future.
