STEWARDSHIP - LEGACY GIFTS

Legacy Gifts and hope go together. Each is critically important. Legacy Gifts hold out hope, not because they fix everything, but because they give us options and time to hear what the Spirit is saying.

A Legacy Gift can be a bequest in your will, a gift of securities, or a gift of life insurance. And Legacy Gifts can be given to your congregation or to any program in the mission and service of the United Church of Canada. Whatever the amount you give, however you give it, or wherever you direct it, your Legacy Gift is critically important. All Legacy Gifts are testimonies of hope about the United Church's role in the future.

For more information and help with this matter, contact Lisa Di Veto, financial Development Officer, 519 754-1803 or email her. You can also contact John Quinn, chair of Finance at East Plains United Church.
