A: Create or amend your will to include a bequest to West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church of either a fixed dollar gift or a percentage of your estate.

  • Make a memorial gift of cash, appreciated stock, or other assets to the Church to honor the memory of a loved one or friend and it will support our liberal faith.
  • Name West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement accounts.
  • Establish a charitable remainder annuity or set up a charitable remainder trust, giving you a tax deduction now for your gift, the right to the income earned by the assets for the rest of your life, and ultimately a gift to West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church after your death.




The Legacy Society has been created by West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church to honor those who have designated our Society as a beneficiary of their Planned Gift. To learn more about The Legacy Society and about how you can make a Planned Gift to West Shore, please contact Finance Manager Suehana Kieres at or call the church office at 440-333-2255.
