The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
– Pablo Picasso

What is Planned Giving?

A planned gift, also known as a legacy gift, includes bequests, trusts, charitable gift annuities, named endowments and other estate planning vehicles.

You can make a legacy gift by including United Church Homes in your estate plans. Donors who have made a legacy gift to UCH are recognized as Pillar Society members. The Pillar Society recognizes those who have remembered our communities through the use of a planned gift.

United Church Homes offers complimentary, values-based estate planning services from an expert adviser. Paul Grassmann, of Thompson & Associates, assists families or individuals monthly as they navigate practical, emotional and legal issues related to making a legacy gift.
