Planned Giving

In 1995 Fr. Chris Metropulos founded the Orthodox Christian Network as he realized the need and desire of the faithful to consume Orthodox content and be able to grow in their faith journey daily. Originally, we were reaching thousands weekly, now we are reaching through our website and robust social media offerings over 1 million individuals monthly worldwide. To sustain this important work for the next generation, we are asking faithful to please join us by placing the Orthodox Christian Network in your estate plans.

Please consider making this commitment and helping sustain the Orthodox Christian Network for future generations of Christians. By making this type of gift through your estate, you will be invited to join a special group of friends like you, who have made a commitment to share their blessings with faithful around the world. You become a member of The OCN Legacy Society. As a member of the Legacy Society, you will receive a special lapel pin, invitations to future special in-person and virtual gatherings, and regular updates from the Executive Director on new initiatives.

If you have already included OCN in your estate plans, please let us know HERE.

A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. ~ Proverbs 18:16

Below are a few gift options you may wish to consider:

  • Bequests, retirement accounts, and other testamentary gift plans: can allow you to make a more substantial gift than you currently imagine.
  • Real estate, tangible property, and securities: can be turned into gifts with immediate tax benefits.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts: Can be used to transfer assets to a loved one with a significantly reduced tax liability.
