Charitable Gift Annuity
Gifts That Pay You Income
There is a way for you to support the Unitarian Universalist Association and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity.
This type of donation can provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
Meet Lars and Lucille Watson
Lars and Lucille Watson found Unitarianism in the late 1950s, because, like so many others, they were looking for a liberal religious community for their growing family. They joined the Seattle University Unitarian Church and were lifelong fixtures at civil rights and anti-war protests.
Although both Lars and Lucille passed away a few years ago, their legacy of love is still with us. In 2002, they started a charitable gift annuity with the UUA, which provided them income for life. When they passed, the remainder of that gift was shared between our UUA and the Quimper UU Fellowship.
It is worth knowing the story of Lars and Lucille not because they gave the most extraordinary legacy gift, or the largest. Their story is important because they represent the thousands of Unitarian Universalists who support our UUA and our congregations in large and small ways through their lives and through their estates.
