The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Legacy Society was founded in 1988 to honor Elizabeth and Elmo
Robinson and others like them who have arranged a gift to the Unitarian
Universalist Association in their estate plans or who have made a life income
gift. Today, more than 400 generous Unitarian Universalists (UUs) have joined the Legacy Society,
representing more than $18 million dollars in bequest intentions for the future
of our liberal religion.
Elizabeth and Elmo Robinson were Unitariarian Universalists deeply committed
to their faith. Both wanted to ensure that this religious movement remained
vibrant for future generations, and a gift to the UUA from their estates has
helped secure that dream. We honor the Robinsons not for the amount of their
bequest, but because their lives—their forward-looking generosity—are
an inspiring example of "faith in action."
During their lifetimes, Elmo and Elizabeth gave of their energy and their
talents to our movement, Elmo as a minister and scholar, and Elizabeth as a
peace activist and influential member of the Unitarian Historical Society.
Theirs was a shared ministry—Elmo was called as a minister to nine Unitarian Universalist
congregations, and at his retirement in Los Alamos, NM, UUs named both Elizabeth
and Elmo Robinson Emeritus Ministers, in recognition of all that they had given,
together, to that community.
The Legacy Society continues to recognize generous people like the Robinsons
who are inspired to leave a lasting legacy to the religious movement that means
so much to us all.
Make a life income gift, or include the Unitarian Universalist Association in
your estate plans and join this special group of UUs who are helping provide a
secure financial future for the Association. Your generosity and foresight will
nourish Unitarian Universalism for many years to come.
