St. Francis Catholic High School in Sacramento is the proud beneficiary of the Diocese of Sacramento’s first Charitable Gift Annuity.

Known throughout the Sacramento region as a gentleman with an unassuming soft-spoken manner, Bill has provided hope and help to thousands of local residents.

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Bill moved to Sacramento in 1963. A savvy businessman, he led Sacramento Savings Bank from a company with 60 employees and three branches to more than 900 employees and $3.2 billion in assets.
Who better to recognize and appreciate the value of charitable investing through a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA)?
Proud to be the Diocese’s first annuitant, Bill believes CGA’s provide a win-win for today’s donors. Charitable investing through a CGA is an opportunity for philanthropists over the age of 65 to receive an annual yield on their charitable gift. Bill’s charitable investment in St. Francis High School will provide him a 7.7% annual cash yield. Compare this to today’s CD rates!
Bill believes CGA’s are a sound charitable investing tool which provide donors, at many different investing levels, an opportunity to support their local Catholic community while supplementing their annual income. Interested philanthropists can begin their charitable investing with a $10,000 CGA through The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Sacramento.
