Directions for Remembering UCEF in Your Will
A will is more than a document providing for the disposition of your assets. It is an expression of your love and commitment to those people and groups that you most cherish here on earth. As a supporter of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, a bequest to the UCEF ensures that your devotion to renewing the life of the Ukrainian Catholic Church through education will continue after you are gone.
Suggested wording for a bequest:
“I give and bequeath to the Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation, of Chicago, IL, _____% of the residue of my estate [or: the sum of $_______] for its charitable, educational and religious purposes.”
Remember that without a legally binding will, your estate may not be disbursed as per your wishes. An estate lawyer or planner can help you put together the necessary documents.
Putting Your Stock in the UCEF
Donating stock is a popular giving option among UCEF/UCU supporters. Please download the form with the detailed instructions on how to do so.
