Tis the Season to Give at UUCWC
During the holiday season and throughout the year we gather here in community. Each of us is a steward of this congregation, and with your support, we can do much within our community and beyond our walls as Unitarian Universalists, as we seek “to create community, celebrate life, and change the world.”
2018 Year End Gift
Please consider an additional gift to UUCWC during the holiday season of a “13th Month” to your pledge. This is also an opportunity for those who may not currently have a pledge to make a gift to our community. We encourage all participants of UUCWC to consider giving around 2.5% – 5% of their income annually. If we could each give equally – which we know we cannot – it would take about $2,100 per family to maintain our current budget. Each year we rely on the additional gifts of members and friends to secure our financial health.
Stewardship Campaign Reminder
We are grateful for the ongoing support you provide to UUCWC through your annual Stewardship pledges, and appreciate your keeping up to date with your periodic payments to honor those pledges. Your contributions are vital to the health of our congregation! If you are unsure where you stand on your pledging to date, please email Stewardship@uucwc.org.
Capital Campaign Reminder
If you will be making a Capital Campaign pledge payment between now and the end of the year, please put CC2018 in memo line of your check. The parking project has been started and we’ve selected a local architect! Thank you for keeping up to date on your generous pledges to enable us to move forward on the next phase of work. Be on the lookout for an update and Q&A info sheet.
Greater Good Project
For the first time ever, the UUCWC staff is inviting each member and friend to consider the true spirit of the holiday season. Consider how much you expect to spend on the holidays, cut that amount in half, and – rather than pocket it for savings – UUCWC will help you gift it in service to needs greater than our own. This year’s sum total will be given to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, which is focusing on Migrant Justice. Quoting the founders of the Greater Good Project: These contributions remind us of needs greater than our own and lift up “living simply so others can simply live.”
We thank you for the generosity that comes in all amounts.
