The VIUF Finance Committee maintains written procedures that describe how we manage our financial affairs.
The Committee is working with the Board to determine where these procedures might be posted for member access.
Meanwhile, the Committee asked the Board to adopt a procedure for members to add VIUF to their will and inform members of that action via the newsletter and posting on the website.
How to Remember Us in Your Will
Creating a bequest is easy and as simple as adding a sentence or two to your will. Regardless of the amount, your bequest is a statement of faith and a demonstration to others that you care enough about the VIUF Fellowship and Unitarian Universalism to support its future.
You should consult your professional advisor to be sure you have a properly drafted legal document.
The language below may be used to direct your bequest:
I give to the Vashon Island Unitarian Fellowship (VIUF) (tax I.D. number 91-1073934), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, located in Vashon, Washington, [ percent of my estate or the sum of
$ ], or (specific asset [security, real property, etc.]) for its general purposes.
