Financial Stewardship

Support the Mission of First Unitarian by making a donation now. 

Our congregation is fully self-supporting, relying on gifts from members and friends for a significant portion of its budget. These gifts support our mission to support each other’s individual search for truth and meaning and our work for justice throughout our communities. 

Our by-laws require that all voting members of the congregation complete a pledge form and make payment on that pledge annually.  In the late winter or early spring we ask our members and pledging friends to make a financial commitment to the congregation for the fiscal year that begins the following July 1st, however, pledge forms are accepted year-round.

The theme for the fiscal year 2019-2020 is “Amplify What You Love”. 

We will nurture and support what we already have – a kind and loving community and a fabulously creative and hard-working staff team all making our special sauce together inside a gorgeous 175-year old building.

 We will build on who we are and what we do best, feeding our unique spiritual gifts – our one-of-a-kind, creative worship services that move people to tears and joy every week will expand to new modalities and serve a wider community.

We will do what we can do to promote the transformation of our world – faithful public advocacy for healing our earth, climate, and water; resistance to systemic racism in all its forms; sanctuary for immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers; bold work toward the ecological sustainability of our physical spaces and practices; and service to the most vulnerable in our society.
