“Let’s Be Superheroes”
2021-2022 Annual Stewardship Pledge Drive
(July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022)
The Stewardship Team welcomes you to be a superhero with your pledge to fund the elimination of apathy in our beloved community. Your pledge keeps the roof over all of our heads, pays the staff and maintains our place of worship. Your contribution ensures the strength and longevity of our church programs and all they do for us and our community.
UUCW is a place to be yourself, to share your strengths and discover new possibilities, a place to find friends and a sense of belonging. It is a place worth protecting! It is also a place very much in need of financial support. It costs money to maintain our beloved community. For the 2021-2022 church year, our goal was $225,000, a modest increase towards fair wages, more sustainable capital changes and strengthening our support of economic justice. As of May, 2021, our pledge total closed at $192,561. If you have not yet made a pledge and would like to, please contact !
We invite you to increase if you can, to give an amount you feel good about. To guide your consideration, here are the annual pledges received for our current church year:
55 Helpful Pledges ($20 – $999)
36 Sustaining Pledges ($1,000 – $3,599)
8 Growth Pledges ($3,600 – $5,999)
9 Visionary Pledges ($6,000 – $15,000)
Don’t let Apathy get the better of Maskman, Robin and Woo City, but let’s dare to imagine the greatest version of ourselves, embracing impossible goals and charging in their direction with uninterrupted zeal, passion, might and vigor. It is up to all of us. Let’s be superheroes!.

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.
