The Tappan Society
Legacy for the Congregational Library and Archives
|Paul and Jacky Clayton,
Tappan Society members
Established in memory of two great financial benefactors with a passion for social justice. In the 1840s and 1850s merchants Arthur and Lewis Tappan represented the best of the Congregational tradition, funding the work of abolitionists and personally sponsoring the rescue of Amistad captives in 1841. There are several ways that you can plan for the Congregational Library and Archives' future by naming us in your will with a bequest or through other avenues that can provide income for you or a loved one.
Tappan Society member
Including The American Congregational Association in your estate plan through a bequest helps guarantee our continued outreach to promote and sustain a shared tradition. Bequests such as a gift of a specific sum of money, stocks or bonds or a particular piece of property can provide significant future resources for The Congregational Library and Archives. Another option is to leave a percentage of your estate or the residue to us after making provisions for family and friends.
Other planned giving
Other forms of planned giving can provide you with income. They include gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and pooled income funds. You can support The Congregational Library and Archives by participating in these and other programs administered by The United Church of Christ Financial Development Ministry.
Please consider leaving a legacy to the Congregational Library.
