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 nearly half of its budget. These gifts support our mission to support each other’s 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 2022-2023 is “For All We Cherish”. 

“As we enter this season of giving at First Unitarian, I invite us all to reflect on the things we cherish about our congregation and what it takes to sustain them – the staff, the maintenance of our buildings, the cost of musicians and video equipment, and countless other elements that form the building blocks of our work. Please give generously and take part in our ministry for another year and long into the future. Everything is amazing and everything is fragile. Please join me in sustaining and growing all that we cherish at First Unitarian. Together we’ll continue to thrive, bringing connection and love, consolation and inspiration to this world that needs us.” – Rev. Ana Levy-Lyons
