The Pelican Society

The Pelican Society is the very lifeblood of the Foundation.  Fittingly, the pelican has been considered a symbol of charity since medieval times.

Members of our legacy gift society make an immeasurable impact by selflessly donating via their estate plans, be it through a bequest, gift annuity, life insurance, and so on.  Significant legacy gifts such as this enable the Foundation to best support the vital ministries and institutions of the Diocese of Buffalo. 

Donations of this nature are both life-affirming and life-changing.  To learn how you can provide a gift that will live on, call (716) 847-8370 or email
