The Congregational Church of Middlebury, UCC, exists because of the private generosity of individuals and families for many generations. Your gift to our church will help to ensure the ongoing operations and outreach of the Church both for today and tomorrow.
Each year for the past several years, more than 95 percent of active and able Church members have joined together to raise over 70 percent of the cost of our church’s programs and operating costs. Each and every gift matters, and our church community is both grateful for and proud of this strong tradition of participation and philanthropy.
Generations of bequests and other gifts to the endowment from church members and friends annually support approximately ten percent of the funding for the work of our church. Bequests also have helped fund a range of priorities from needed upkeep and expansion of our historic church building to growing our music programs to expanding opportunities for children and youth.
Many charitable gift planning opportunities are available to members and friends that will allow you and your family to make a difference to present and future generations through our church. To learn more about wills and estate planning, see:
