The Unitarian Church in Charleston

For many of us this church has become an important source of strength and friendship.  While we pledge each year to support this beloved place by our gifts and our energy, many are motivated to consider a legacy upon passing.

It is a special satisfaction to know that the decisions we make today will help maintain the church well into the future. Please consider your resources and the ways your generosity can benefit the church beyond your own lifetime.

The mission of the Planned Giving Committee is to increase on awareness of this opportunity and ways in which it may be accomplished for you.

Almost all legacy gifts are given in monetary form and become part of the Church’s Endowment.  The major goal of the Endowment is to provide a secure and growing fund to ensure the long-term vitality and financial health of our church community and of liberal religion in the LowCountry.  This is an important mission.

A legacy can come in the form of cash or appreciated stock; or it can be all or a percentage of a retirement fund, life insurance policy, trust, or other.  A legacy may be made by an individual, a couple or a family.  It may be quite small or quite large.

At your death, when the gift is received, your name, if you desire and as you desire, will be engraved on the wall in the Gilman Memorial – just outside of the narthex of the Church. If you would like to talk more about this possibility, speak with any of us on the committee.
