FUCSJ Building     2022 Pledge Campaign

The First Unitarian Church of San Jose is a liberal faith community supporting inclusive, antiracist, antioppressive values. We are supported by our members and friends.

Our 2022-2023 Annual Campaign concluded successfully in May 2022. We raised $432,000, thanks to generous donors and a strong response to Rev. Nancy’s appeal when we were falling short. Thank you to everybody who pledged. We are overjoyed by the strong support during these difficult times.

The annual budget will be considered by a Congregational Meeting after Sunday service on May 22. You may access a copy of the proposed budget with the following link:

Proposed 2022-2023 Annual Operating Budget.

In 2022, we conducted two pledge campaigns simultaneously: the regular Annual Giving Campaign, which pays for the salaries of our staff and the operating costs of the church; and a once-in-a-generation Capital Campaign, which will pay for urgent repairs to the roof and other parts of the building, as well as improvements to the functionality, accessibility, and security of the building for the modern era. As of May 2022, the Capital Campaign has raised $1,517,000. Thank you to all of our generous donors.
