The Stevens Chapel Legacy Society at UUSMV recognizes and honors members of the Society who have made a commitment to its future through a bequest from a will or estate, or by naming the Society as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy or retirement account.

Such a gift is easy to implement, flexible and tax-wise. A few sentences in a will or naming of a beneficiary are all that is needed.

UUs who make the Society a part of their legacy come from all elements of the congregation. Many are older members who may be engaged in estate planning. Younger members and families also find that there is great satisfaction in knowing that they will have a positive impact on future generations of UUs with a simple planned giving commitment at an early stage of their lives.
