Giving is one of life’s great satisfactions, especially when you know that your gifts help to improve the lives of others. Gifts of time, talent, and financial resources all help Unitarian Universalist congregations to thrive. Dedicating a percentage of your estate to SUUS and/or to our UUA or other UU organizations is a way to ensure you are making a difference in this world. Transferring stock or IRA distributions directly to SUUS is an easy way to increase your pledging, to make a contribution to our Mission or Endowment funds and to realize some tax advantages.
Our UUA has many resources and you can learn a great deal by going to: www.uua.org/giving/planned. UU Umbrella Giving, Life Income Gifts, Gifts by Will, Non-cash Gifts are just a few of the many ways help grow our faith. Click here for brochures explaining some of these options.
During the coming year, the SUUS is planning to schedule several congregational workshops to educate and explore estate planning and charitable giving. If you are interested in learning more, contact our Treasurer.
