Legacy Giving

Extend Your Impact with Legacy Giving!

As the needs of our community change, Central Union Mission expands to meet those needs. We’re able to do this largely because of the financial generosity of those who love this ministry and choose to extend their impact for generations to come.

One of the best ways you can extend your impact with Central Union Mission is by including us in your Will. Gifts in the Will are often called “Legacy Gifts” because they allow generous friends like you to create a lasting legacy that changes lives for Christ, even long after they’re gone.  

I would like more information on including Central Union Mission in my will.

Many of the people that are served by Central Union Mission come to us in desperate need with no one else to turn to,  When you leave a gift in your will to Central Union Mission, you can be sure that it will make an impact on the lives that need it most and restore hope through the power of Christ.  

Proverbs 22:9, ESV  The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

We’ve designed an easy-to-understand Christian Will page where you’ll have access to helpful information on how you can leave a legacy with a gift in your Will including:

  • Articles that will inspire you to become the person God made you to be!
  • Step-by-step instructions on leaving a gift in your Will
  • Tools and resources to help you take your next step
