First Unitarian Stewardship Campaign 2024 Update

As the leaves change color and fall from the trees, it can mean only one thing: It’s pledge drive season at First Unitarian!

Our campaign theme this year is “Let the Sunshine In!” As the Fifth Dimension sang in 1969, we’re asking you to “Open up your heart and let the sunshine in!”

If you have not received a letter or an email about pledging for 2024, please reach out ASAP to Ward Kelsey.

If you made a pledge last year, we’re asking you to increase it by 5%— about the level of inflation. Pledges at this level will enable the church to cover its expenses in 2024. This is called a “rollover pledge.”

To accept this rollover pledge, there is nothing you need to do. The rollover amount will be entered as your 2024 pledge on October 31.

If you wish to adjust your pledge amount (either up or down), please fill out and submit our online form. If you prefer, you can print the form, fill it out, and return it to the church with your 2024 pledge amount.

If you didn’t make a pledge last year, please consider making one for 2024. Your annual pledge helps to ensure that our beloved community will continue to shine brightly.

Please consider making a Fair Share pledge – that is, a pledge of 3% to 5% of household income as you define it. For instance, for every $10,000 of income, the Fair Share range is $300 to $500.

Please submit new pledges and changes to rollover pledges by October 31 at the latest.
Each and every pledge is welcome and appreciated. Thank you for your support of our beloved community!
