Financial Feasibility Study
We have engaged Kay Crider, a Congregational Stewardship Consultant endorsed by the UUA, to conduct a Financial Feasibility Study to help us prepare for the Capital Campaign. The results will clarify how much our members know about our plans, help identify any issues that need to be resolved, and determine the level of financial support we can expect from the congregation.
Kay will be conducting 28 confidential interviews, approximately 20% of our donors in the current church year. While it is not possible for her to meet with everyone in the congregation, we have selected a diverse cross-section of our congregation to participate in the study, ensuring that the results will be representative of our collective opinions and give us the likely financial scope of our project.
If you are invited, we hope you will agree to participate so that we get a representative picture of the feelings of the congregation.
The interviews will be held via Zoom from October 18-30. Kay will summarize and analyze all the information shared by the participants and present a report to our Board, minister, and Capital Campaign team in mid-November. The report, along with recommendations for immediate next steps, will be made available to the entire congregation. After reviewing the results of the financial feasibility study, any changes to the scope of the projects and the Capital Campaign can be presented and discussed with the congregation.
Following that final discernment process, the Capital Campaign will proceed in early 2022 in coordination with the annual pledge drive. We plan to engage all members of our church community at that time.
