A Note from the Board of Trustees
We stand strong in the knowing that we are eternal beings. And we recognize our time here in these bodies is temporary. While we are here, we work, we play, we love, we heal, and we grow. For many of us, UWM Eastern Region has been a huge part of the journey. Whether the region has supported your ministry or you as an individual, we all want the Eastern Region to thrive and continue to offer conferences, education, scholarships, support, connections, and more. The region has helped so many ministries, Licensed Unity Teachers, ministers, boards, and students. It’s always important to give back.
We are hoping that you will help us make sure that Unity Eastern Region is here for the next generations when they need it.
So, it is from a spiritual foundation of love and gratitude, that we ask you to consider making a gift to Unity Eastern Region in planning your estate. We believe that this is good soil and the seeds you plant will continue to bear fruit for many years.
In love and service,
Eastern Region Board of Trustees
