Have a gift to UGM in your will?

Let us know  

Offer hope to the homeless for many years to come. Become a Legacy Partner.

UGM Legacy Partners plant seeds today for tomorrow’s harvest.

When you entrust a portion of your life’s work to UGM through your estate plans, you’re investing in the future wellbeing of the most vulnerable in our community. Your “ultimate gift” helps ensure that UGM ministries will continue to make a difference well beyond your lifetime.

Taking a bow in front of the Mens Recovery Center

Legacy gifts, invested through the UGM Foundation, provide financial security far into the future and facilitate expansion projects that increase the Mission’s reach. Anna Ogden Hall, UGM Camp, the Men’s Shelter vocational education center, and many other expansions and renovations across the ministry have been made possible through the wise planning and generosity of our legacy partners. Many men, women, and children today are finding hope and healing because faithful partners thought to include UGM in their estate plans. 

Legacy giving can be as simple as naming UGM in your will, but there are also several other options: you can provide for the future of UGM through gifts of real estate, life insurance, trusts, and charitable gift annuities.

UGM also gladly receives gifts of stock, IRA required minimum distributions, and donor advised funds. 

Let us help you navigate the details so you can leave a legacy of generosity.
