Resilient and Committed – First Unitarian Church Stewardship Drive

Our pledge drive for the upcoming fiscal year, 2021-2022, is well underway. We have been pleased to hear from so many of you, and every pledge is greatly appreciated!

During the past year, our church has faced many challenges, and we have worked through many creative solutions to unexpected problems. We have been resilient in the face of pandemic conditions, and we have remained committed to our UU values.

As of March 24, 2021, we had a total of 108 pledges on file for a total of $285,000, which is 58% of our funding. While we are happy to have received these pledges so far, we have noticed that at this same point in the campaign last year, we had received 157 pledges as compared to the 108 received so far this year.

Our stewardship campaign will wrap up during our Sunday, March 28 Worship Service. If you have not yet submitted your pledge for next year, please do so as soon as you can. We rely on pledge totals in order to prepare our budget, and we hope that we will be able to meet our goal of $490,000 and be well prepared for a new church year at First U!

There are multiple ways to send in your pledge; choose what works for you:

Once you have completed your pledge, think about your payment plan. Do you use our automated giving process? If so, be sure to renew your authorization for FY 21/22 here. You can also renew over the phone or by printing out this form and mailing it to the church office.

You can also pay your pledge next year by check, cash or stock transfer.
