Legacy Giving
& Gift Planning

Offer hope to the homeless for many years to come.

Taking a bow in front of the Mens Recovery Center

NEWS: Charitable gift annuity rates have increased again, making the payouts you’d receive the highest in 16 years. Talk to Gwen at UGM and lock in these rates for a fixed, stable income. After your lifetime, the remaining amount becomes part of your legacy to Union Gospel Mission.

Become a Legacy Partner:
Invest in our community’s future

When you entrust a portion of your life’s work to UGM through your estate plans, you’re investing in the future well-being of the most vulnerable in our community. Many men, women, and children today are finding hope and healing because faithful partners thought to include UGM in their estate plans. 

Legacy gifts, invested through the UGM Foundation, provide financial security far into the future and facilitate expansion projects that increase the Mission’s reach.

Legacy giving can be as simple as naming UGM in your will, but there are also several other options:

  • IRA Distribution
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Trusts
  • Stock
  • Donor Advised Funds
