Anima Christi Society

Anima Christi Society

Anima Christi means “Soul of Christ”. The Catholic Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts established the “Anima Christi” Legacy Society to honor individuals and families who have made a planned gift in their will or estate plan to the Catholic Foundation, any of its funds, a parish, a Catholic school, a Catholic organization, or the diocese of Fall River. Membership in the Anima Christi Legacy Society is simple.  Click Statement of Intention Form –Catholic Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts to download the Intention form and send it to us with a copy of the gift document.

For more information, please contact Miriam Finn Sherman, Chief Executive Officer at 508-985-6510 or email

I am interested in discussing my options for a planned gift for the Catholic Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts.
