Let the Sunshine In!

First Unitarian Stewardship Campaign 2024 Update

The 2024 Stewardship Campaign is now in full swing!

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

Here’s a quick reminder about how the pledging process works:

If you made a pledge last year, we’re asking you to increase your pledge 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.

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 submit new pledges and changes to rollover pledges by October 31 at the latest.

If you have not received a letter or an email about pledging for 2024, please contact Ward Kelsey.

What’s a Fair Share Pledge?

We ask that you consider making 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.

We understand that our members’ life circumstances vary. We do not expect you to place an undue hardship on yourself to support the church. We ask you to consider pledging an amount that is significant for you but not onerous.

After thoughtfully considering your circumstances, let your pledge represent your joyful commitment to our shared values.

No matter the amount, each and every pledge is welcome and appreciated. Thank you for your support of our beloved community!
