Annual Fund Drive
Annual Fund Drive
Online pledge card is available here.
Each year in the spring, the congregation is asked to confirm its commitment to our shared ministry by renewing its annual pledge. We are living in unprecedented times. As we come to grips with change and loss, we also reflect on all we take for granted. At the forefront of this is physical togetherness, especially for those who are isolated at home alone. Susan Gray, UU Association President said recently “This is a time for community care, for pastoral care, to do what we can to love each other, to offer what we can to save lives and care about those who are most vulnerable.”
The theme for our annual 2020-2021 fund drive is Love in the Time of Corona . We want to be there, as we always have, for our members and friends through this pandemic, but we have lost over one third of our income from building rentals. We encourage everyone to at least sustain last year’s pledge into next year, as you are able. Payments are not due until July 1, 2020.
The UU Church of Studio City is here for you, until we can gather again. Thank you for your ongoing generosity during this crucial time.
Rev. Hannah Petrie, Minister
Robert Gonsalves, Stewardship Chair
What is a pledge?
A pledge is a promise to donate an amount of money for the ongoing growth and support of our church community. It is one of the responsibilities of being a Member, though Friends also can and do pledge.
Why should I pledge?
On a practical level, it helps us plan a budget. But it is also an investment in the values and principles that we stand for, and a way to ensure that our beloved community stays vibrant and strong and our building a space for reflection and inclusion.
How will my pledge be used?
Your gift pays for all the things we
do together: worship and music; religious exploration for children, youth, and adults; social justice work in our wider community; and per-member annual dues to the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and Pacific Southwest District (PSWD). It also pays for the maintenance and operation of our beautiful building and grounds.
