The OUUC Endowment Fund is a special account that will generate revenue to enhance the congregation’s ministry and mission in the future. Gifts to the Endowment Fund are invested, and only the earnings from those investments can be spent. When fully funded, the OUUC Endowment Fund will provide a sustained income flow for our church in the years to come.

HOW ARE THE FUNDS SPENT?

The Endowment Committee works with the congregation to identify specific enduring programs worthy of our combined endowment gifts.

WHO OVERSEES THE FUND?

The Endowment Fund is administered by the Endowment Committee, under the general direction of the OUUC Board. Endowment funds are isolated from other OUUC funds and spending of the earnings requires approval by both the congregation and the Board.

HOW WILL MY GIFTS BENEFIT OUUC?

Your gift enriches and affirms your personal commitment to our religious community and its fundamental beliefs and values.

Each generation provides a unique legacy to those who follow. Just as we inherit gifts from previous generations, so too will future members and supporters of OUUC find support in the gifts we make today.

Your gifts allow the congregation to further the dreams of our faith for those who have found a religious home here.

WHAT ARE THE WAYS I CAN GIVE TO THE OUUC ENDOWMENT?

Endowment gifts can take many different forms, and each can have tax and estate advantages for the donor. You are encouraged to work with your legal and financial advisors to find the optimal way for you to support the future of OUUC with your gift. Gifts can take the form of cash, certificates of deposit, securities, or other items of value.
