“And So It Goes….Unless…!”

The Pledge Campaign is underway NOW, and its time for you to make your financial commitment to UUSC for the next church year, which starts July 1, 2018, and goes through June 30, 2019.


We all know how important it is for the church to know what our financial resources will be as we work on the next budget.  It’s always hard having to compromise on our needs and wishes due to limited funds.  And so it goes…


Unless!  Unless everyone takes this opportunity seriously and does what they can.  We have the chance to have a “break-though” year if our long-time pledgers continue their ever-growing support and our newer pledgers step up to help.  Here’s a little data to consider:


  • Our pledges last year ranged from under $100 to over $8000.  
  • The average pledge was $1411.
  • We had close to 100% member participation in the pledge campaign, and we expect excellent pledge fulfillment.
  • Our total budget last year was $233,000.  Income from pledges was budgeted at $166,000. The balance is mainly made up from rentals, summer RE camp fees, offering plate collection, and funds from our endowment.
  • Some areas of concern in the budget: not meeting UUA recommended levels for staff compensation; not paying our fair share of UUA dues; not fully funding needed maintenance expenses.  
  • All these areas, and others, could be at least partly addressed with a break-through year if every member pledges and amounts average $1500.  People with greater resources supplement those with smaller, of course, but everyone can help!


Packets of information are available at the Pledge Table during coffee hour each Sunday.


Pledges are due SUNDAY APRIL 8th!  Put your pledge card in the box on the Pledge Table, or mail it in, or email our wonderful Financial Secretary, Barbara Archibald, at archibaldmail@gmail.com.  Thank you in advance for making this a Break-Through Year!
