You don’t have to be a wealthy to make a difference in the world. Bequests are for everyone and anyone. Whether you are writing your first will or updating an existing one, we hope you’ll include a gift to the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara in your plans. In a conflicted world, Unitarian Universalism offers love, democracy, and compassionate justice, and a bequest will strengthen and extend our faith, both today and after you are gone.

With a charitable bequest you can use your will to give a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a specific item, such as real estate. Some bequests are unrestricted, given for general purposes, while others are more restricted. Together we can put your gifts to use where they are most needed. Our Planned Giving Advisors will meet with you to understand your wishes and provide guidance to best ensure your wishes are met.
