1869 Society

The 1869 Society, named for the year in which UCAN was founded, highlights those individuals who have chosen to include UCAN in their estate plans.

You can become a member in one of the following ways:

  • Making a donation to UCAN in a will or living trust
  • Naming UCAN as the beneficiary of a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust
  • Naming UCAN as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or a 401k/IRA retirement plan

By supporting UCAN in this way, 1869 members are leaving a legacy for years to follow and ensuring future income for UCAN.

Please contact Tamara Reed Tran, Associate Vice President, Development, at 773-588-0180 if you have included UCAN in your estate planning, for we would love to welcome you into the 1869 Society.

If you haven't yet included UCAN in your plans and would like more information on how to do so, we would be glad to answer any questions you may have.
