It takes over $12,000 a week just to keep our doors open. The most important source of funds for our annual operating budget comes from annual giving – the fulfillment of pledges from our congregation.
Planned Giving and Special Gifts
It takes longer-term giving to maintain this spiritual home for future generations. Generous additional bequests and major gifts sustain and enhance UUCPA, planting the trees that provide shade for the future
Members and Friends also contribute time and talent through a variety of fundraising events. Get involved! It’s a great way to have fun getting to know others while supporting our cherished community.
Those three support systems all add up to good stewardship.
There’s one more very easy way to generate money for UUCPA at no cost to you: via purchases through Amazon. If you buy things through Amazon, go to smile.amazon.com, and when asked what charity you want Amazon to support, put in UUCPA. After that, it’s automatic: whenever you use Amazon, use the URL smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com, and the company will donate a small percentage of your purchase to the church.
If you don’t already have an Amazon account, you’ll be walked through the easy process of creating one. And if you already have a charity designated on Smile, and want to change to UUCPA–thank you!–just look at the drop down menu on Your Accounts and you’ll see Smile about halfway down.
