Legacy Giving Campaign
By Nancy Simpson-Banker, Published on September 9, 2017
The Legacy Giving Committee is excited to share with you that First Parish in Needham will be participating in the Wake Now Our Vision Campaign this fall. The UU Congregation at Shelter Rock has provided a $5 million challenge grant to encourage legacy giving among UU organizations and congregations. A legacy gift is a significant charitable gift during a donor’s life or at death that is part of his or her financial or estate plan. To inspire new legacy gift commitments, First Parish in Needham will qualify for a cash match of 10% of the gift’s estimated value (up to $10,000 per donor)! You will hear more about this in the coming months. If you want to learn how to make a legacy gift to First Parish, stop by the Legacy Giving table at the volunteer fair on September 17th. If you want to speak privately, reach out to any of the committee members or to Nancy Simpson-Banker, the committee chair, or one of the committee members: Katie Barnett, Jim Leffingwell, Eileen and Rick Vincent. Bob Rands and Bob Smart are ad hoc members of the committee.
