Stewardship Drive Q & As
A pledge is a promise to make a contribution to the church. The total amount pledged by everyone is used by the Church leaders to plan the programs and set a budget for the next fiscal year.
Our goal is to obtain a pledge from 100% of the members and active nonmembers of the congregation. This goal is based on fundamental fairness. We are a community of people with a vision. We understand we cannot achieve our vision alone. We rely on each other.
We understand everyone’s financial means are different. In order to successfully pursue our vision, we would like first-time pledgers to consider pledging 2% of their adjusted gross income.
Our staff salary levels continue to be below Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Guidelines. We did not make our fair contribution to the UUA and the District last year and we continue to struggle to fund our basic programs. We hope to prevent this from happening again by making people aware that we need pledges from everyone.
