Make a True Love Pledge
Our church's ongoing ministries are funded primarily by the pledges of its members. Each year in the spring, we hold an "Every Member Canvass" during which time members and active friends of the church decide how much they plan to give during the coming fiscal year.
This year, the theme is "True Love," and we recommend that you take a few minutes to read through the very brief campaign booklet.
Last year, 82% of the church budget was based on these pledges. The budget is proposed by the Program and Operations Council based on requests from committees and from feedback given during the canvass campaign. Then it is approved by the vote of the members at a congregational meeting in late May.
Make your contribution using the online Pledge Form. After you fill it out, save it to your hard drive and then e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also download an Electronic Funds Transfer form if you would like to pay your pledge with regular deductions from your bank account; however, that form must be printed out and turned in to the church office with a voided check. (Even if you have one on file from last year, the bank requires us to collect a new form and new voided check every year.) If you would like to pay your pledge using appreciated stock, download the Stock Transfer Form and follow the instructions.
Everyone who pledges will receive this year's commemorative "True Love" lapel pin with the campaign logo (above).
Please note that the church pays dues to the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the Pacific Central District (PCD) on behalf of every member of record, no matter what financial contribution the member has made. This year the total cost of PCD/UUA dues is $80.
Please write a separate check for dues, paying $80 for each member in your household (including adult children who have signed the membership book). If that is not possible, please at least consider that expense to the church when making your operating pledge.
If you have questions or would like to turn in your EFT or Stock forms, pease contact our Office Administrator, Susan Burke-Diquisto.
