The Sequoia Society recognizes donors who include one of the SSMO entities (the Sisters, Valley Catholic School, Maryville or the SSMO Foundation) in their estate plans. Estate planning offers options to create your own legacy with the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and their sponsored ministries.

By designating an SSMO entity in your will, life insurance policy or retirement plan, you can make a significant gift while maximizing estate tax savings for your family and heirs.

We are tremendously grateful to the following individuals who have thoughtfully included the SSMO Ministries in their estate plans:
