Pledging & Giving
What is a pledge?
A pledge is a promise to donate money to the congregation.
Why does UUCSC ask members and friends to make pledges?
UUCSC is completely self-supporting. The financial health of our spiritual home is determined by the generosity of our members and friends. Almost 55% of all UUCSC expenses are funded through the continuing pledges of our members and friends. It is our goal to see this percentage rise as a measure of our growing financial health.
How do I make a pledge?
You may fill out one of our green pledge cards anytime and submit it to the office or simply drop it in the offering plate as it goes by during the Sunday service. You may also set up recurring payments via PayPal. You will receive quarterly statements about your pledge.
How do I make a one-time gift?
Simply drop a check in our offering plate during the Sunday morning service, or submit your gift via PayPal.
What are other ways I can help to financially sustain the good ministry of UUCSC?
Every year, UUCSC puts on various fund-raising events in addition to the Annual Fund Drive to reach a $15 – 20 K goal. Participate in our Silent Auction, Music Events such as the Holiday Party and Cabaret, and Inspiration Sunday, when a special appeal is made to meet the goals of our on-going ministry.
How do I donate to the Endowment Fund?
The more our Endowment Fund grows the more financial security UUCSC enjoys. Giving to the UUCSC Endowment is an investment in the long-term success of the congregation. Each year, half of the Endowment’s dividends are available to underwrite projects or initiatives that enhance our facilities and sustain our programs.
To give to UUCSC’s Endowment Fund, simply write “Endowment Fund” on the memo line of your check, and either drop it in the offering plate or mail it to the church office.
