Your Legacy, Their Future

As we journey through life, we aspire to leave a meaningful legacy, one that transcends the boundaries of time and resources. Our cherished values, the love we hold for our dear ones, and the memories of places we’ve explored should endure, not just within our hearts but in tangible ways. For countless years, Moon Beach, Daycholah Center, and Cedar Valley have served as hallowed havens, where countless children, adults, and families have come together to celebrate, grow in faith, and forge enduring connections. The spirit of outdoor ministry thrives here, offering a warm embrace to all who seek it.

For many decades, United Church Camps, Inc. (UCCI) has been actively shaping the future. Your legacy gift will enable Moon Beach, Daycholah Center, and Cedar Valley to persist in their mission of extending a heartfelt and nurturing welcome to all, offering support, healing, and ministering with God’s inclusive love. The values you hold dear are precisely what we aim to deliver: safety, comfort, and a closer walk with the Divine – all of which are abundantly present within these sacred places.

What is a Legacy Gift?

A legacy gift is a powerful commitment to our cause, a planned future donation that designates a part of your estate to support UCCI. It’s a testament to your enduring belief in our mission and your desire to leave a positive mark on the world.

The UCCI Legacy Circle

When you make a legacy gift to UCCI, you become a cherished member of the UCCI Legacy Circle. This circle honors your generosity and inspires others to follow your lead. Your legacy will be celebrated, and your name will forever be associated with the positive change you are creating. You can give anonymously as well.

How to Make a Legacy Gift

Creating a legacy gift is easier than you might think. Here are some ways to make a lasting impact:

Include UCCI in Your Will or Trust

Designate a specific sum, a percentage of your estate, or assets to UCCI in your will or trust. Example language: “I give, devise, and bequeath to United Church Camps, Inc. (UCCI), Tax ID # 39-0927520, a not-for-profit organization, located in Ripon, Wisconsin, the sum of $ dollars (OR, ___ percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate), for its general purposes to be used and/or disposed of as UCCI may in its sole discretion deem appropriate.”

Transfer Bank or Investment Accounts

Name UCCI as the “payable on death” or “transfer on death” beneficiary to ensure a seamless transfer of these assets to support our mission.

Life Insurance Policy

Make UCCI a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.

Retirement Account

Designate UCCI as a beneficiary of your retirement account and/or recipient of your required minimum distribution. Charities do not pay income tax, so the entire amount of your retirement account will directly benefit UCCI.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Establish a charitable gift annuity, providing you with a stream of income during your life, with the remaining funds benefiting UCCI upon your passing.

“I see the great things these camps do for our congregations. I attended as a teen and had some of my most exciting and tender moments living and exploring God’s creation. My hope and prayer is that these camps will continue to nurture many more kids and adults into the future. God is Good!”
