The UUFNN Legacy Fund is our savings account for the future. It provides for long-term financial security, allowing our community and mission to prosper. Just as families save so that they can enrich their lives and cover unforeseen emergencies, so does UUFNN.
The Legacy Fund is a restricted fund completely separate from the annual operating budget of the church, with proceeds under the care of the Legacy Committee. Consider making a donation to UUFNN’s Legacy Fund as a means of establishing your personal legacy in a lasting and significant way, contributing over time to the strength and prosperity of our community. A gift may also be given in memory or honor of a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion such as an anniversary or child dedication. Your tax-deductible gift may be made payable to Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northern Nevada with “Legacy Fund” spelled out on the memo line.
Donations in any amount may be made at any time, either as an immediate gift or as a deferred charitable donation made via your will, trust, or any other means. Donations are typically in the form of cash, stocks, or bonds. In addition, UUFNN may be named as beneficiary of an insurance policy or stocks. Donations of property such as stocks that have appreciated substantially during ownership may result in significant income tax savings for the donor.
Our funds are invested with a professionally managed, diversified fund that supports Unitarian Universalist values through socially responsible investing. Each year, a portion of UUFNN’s Legacy Fund revenues may be dispersed through grants to support unique projects that enrich our lives and support UU principles. In recent years, funds have been distributed to support social action initiatives, to install and enhance access for persons with disabilities, and to improve technology at UUFNN.
