Each year in early spring, UUC holds its annual Stewardship pledge drive whereby members and friends are asked to make a monetary pledge to support the mission and vision of the congregation. UUC receives no outside funding and relies solely on the generosity of congregants for support. As we move from a small-sized congregation (pastoral) to a larger-sized one (program), stewardship is evolving into a year-round process.

Stewardship 2017–2018

Inspire. Create. Transform.

How Much Should I Give?

How much one donates is a very personal decision. The Unitarian Universalist Association recommends a donation of from 2-5% of one’s adjusted annual income. If your circumstances make this unrealistic, consider making it a goal to work toward. In the end it is not so much about “raising money” as it is creating a community of generosity where lives are literally transformed, where children learn our values, where we each find support in all areas of our lives, and where our values spread out into the larger world of social service and social justice. Give as generously as you can, experience the sense of joy and well-being that comes from creating and participating in the abundance of UUC.
