Planned Gift Donors

Planned gifts are those put in place during one’s lifetime to provide benefit for a designated recipient after one’s death. A charitable bequest, gift annuity or trust, or insurance or IRA beneficiary designation provides essential funding for future ministries.

Since 2000, the individuals listed below have thoughtfully and generously made such provisions to benefit either the United Church Board for Ministerial Assistance (UCBMA) or the Pension Boards-United Church of Christ. We honor and acknowledge them as Legacy Partners in Ministry for putting their faith and trust in the work we do and in supporting future ministry.

If you have already made a planned gift that designates UCBMA or the Pension Boards as a beneficiary, or would like information about arranging such a future contribution, please This email address is being protected from spambots.
