Gratitude Tree

Planned giving donors have historically provided essential resources that have enabled the Diocese of Jefferson City to help underwrite many improvement projects through the years and to establish an endowment. The Tree of Gratitude in Alphonse J. Schwartze Memorial Catholic Center in Jefferson City recognizes and honors those families and individuals who have provided for the Diocese of Jefferson City and all its parishes, through a planned gift.
