A pledge match challenge has been started!
We have a goal of $375,000 to meet next year’s financial obligations. As of April 23th, 2018, 129 households have pledged over $325,000!
In response to the congregation raising $325,000, a generous donor has started a dollar-for-dollar pledge match for any additional pledge or increased pledge. This pledge match challenge will not exceed $25,000 to the donor ($50,000 combined). The offer is only on the table until April 30th . Please, don’t delay in responding to this challenge! Contact Rob Curran @ email@example.com if you have questions.
On behalf of the stewardship committee, we wish to thank everyone for the time, talent and treasure given to our community.
The story behind the theme for 2018
As Unitarian Universalists we have our own symbol, the chalice flame, to share with the world. It is not by a miracle that this light keeps burning, it is by the generosity of congregation members and generous donors. Let us raise high the flame so that all can see.
The Finance Committee has set a pledge goal of $375,000 for fiscal year 2018-2019. This will require a 17.9 percent increase over the amount pledged last year, allowing us to provide increased funding for:
- Our larger building, utilities, and maintenance
- Additional commitment to programs to help our community
- Ample reserves for contingencies
- Our mortgage expense
Our congregation has awakened to the idea that we must all dig deep to make significant change for our future. Our support is broadening–evidenced in the wonderful contributions to our capital campaign and our Green Initiative. We need the light from each of our members to illuminate our future!
How do I get started?
