Thank you for considering making a pledge to U.U.C.H. We cannot do what we do without your support!

 

 

 

This year, as we approach the 30th Anniversary of the founding of UUCH, it is a special time to not only look back at our history and the foundations upon which we are built, but to examine the full narrative of the last three decades – consider where we are now, how we got here, and how we want to move Forward, Together. 

In the coming year we have plans for much more active and impactful community outreach. A booth at Last Fridays in Hillsborough, an online merchandise shop, and a full relaunch of our justice team are just a few things that are in the works. In order to share and communicate our values in the community and our congregation, we are going to put our funds to good use not only inside our walls, but in our local community, and spread our own kind of gospel of love and inclusiveness. 

We invite you to join hands in support of our beloved congregation by making a financial commitment to our annual pledge campaign. The funds raised through this campaign enable us to maintain our beautiful spiritual home, support our phenomenal staff, provide engaging religious education programs, and extend our outreach efforts to those in need. Your financial commitment, no matter the size, will make a significant impact on our ability to continue the vital work of fostering love, justice, and understanding. It is through your support that we can nurture the seeds of compassion, understanding, and love that grow within our congregation and extend outward, creating ripples of positive change.

In making your pledge, consider the impact your generosity will have on the lives of those within our congregation and the wider community. Please consider the following ways to support our annual fundraising campaign:

  1. Monthly Pledge: The largest proportion of our annual budget comes from monthly contributors. Consider spreading your support throughout the year by making a monthly pledge. This allows you to contribute in a sustainable way that aligns with your financial capacity.
  2. One-Time Donation: Make a one-time contribution to the campaign, demonstrating your commitment to the well-being and growth of our congregation. This is often the most convenient option for our retired members, or others donating through retirement or other savings funds.
  3. Planned Giving: While not specific to the annual pledge drive, now is a great time to consider including UUCH in your estate plan. Our Stewardship Team is always happy to answer any questions you may have.

We encourage you to pledge an amount that reflects your commitment to our shared values and the vision we hold for our community. As we embark on this journey of giving, let us be reminded that our actions today shape the path for future generations. Thank you for being an integral part of our Unitarian Universalist family. May our shared commitment to love, justice, and compassion guide us as we strive to make a positive difference in the world. Together, we will continue to build a community where all are welcomed, respected, and cherished.
