planned giving

Our congregation has a long tradition of planned giving. The first bequest made to our congregation was in 1803, and members and friends have been following in that tradition ever since. For over 200 years, these acts of giving have sustained and advanced the values, generosity, compassion and reason that lie at the very core of our liberal faith. Including this congregation in your estate planning ensures that these values, and our faith in the power of these values, will be handed down to generations long after we have all passed on.

Ways To Give
There are several ways to give to First U. You can make a gift through: The Benevolent Society of the First Unitarian Church of Providence
The Benevolent Society was created to honor those members and friends of our congregation who, through their estate planning, recognize the importance planned giving plays in the life and future of our congregation. The society also provides useful information on planned giving that can be shared with your personal attorney or estate planner. Please contact the church office (401-421-7970) for more information on how to join the Benevolent Society, or to get more information about planned giving.
