While there are many ways to leave a lasting impact on this world, such as volunteering, spreading God's word, or supporting our communities, legacy giving ensures the organizations we cherish continue to change lives after we pass. In 1990, William H. Guild, blessed the NACCC by leaving a generous legacy gift that continues to support the NACCC operations each year.
Mr. Guild lived and worked as a trust officer in Kansas City, Kansas for most of his life. The grandson of a Congregational Minister, he learned the importance of supporting his church community. Active not only with his local church, but also with the NACCC, Will formed relationships with the staff and other Congregationalists. At the 1975 Annual Meeting and Conference, he reconnected with Gertrude Hegardt Johnston. They were later married and relocated to Duluth, where they became active members of the Duluth Congregational Church.
A supporter of congregationalism his whole life, it was important for him to continue his giving even after his death. Mr. Guild's thoughtful legacy gift provides ongoing annual support to the NACCC, helping to insure that the organization continue to serve our member churches and advance the Congregational Way.
