Ways of Giving

We give in gratitude for each other, for our time together, for our sacred space, for those in our wider community, and for those who lead us to be our best selves.

Annual Giving

Each member of UU St. Pete makes an annual pledge to fund the good works of our congregation throughout each fiscal year. Every member takes responsibility for pledging as generously as their individual circumstances allow. 

Legacy Builders

Members and friends set up a plan to make a gift from their estate to the Endowment Fund of UU St. Pete. Leaving a portion of the assets one has accumulated over the course of a lifetime ensures the continuation of the spiritual home that they have come to cherish and perpetuates our UU values.

Social Justice Collections

Together we support the ongoing work of UU St. Pete in the wider community:

UUs Helping People—aids the homeless in South Pinellas County through Celebration Outreach, the Friday night picnic, and other advocacy actions

Migrant Families—supports the farmworkers in Immokalee, FL and local refugee families

FAST—Faith and Action for Strength Together, an interfaith group that identifies issues confronting the community and undertakes to influence decisions makers in governmental positions to help address these issues adequately and permanently.

Special Projects

Periodically UU St. Pete undertakes collections to fund specific social justice projects to benefit the larger community

UU Guest at Your Table

Major projects are undertaken from time to time to improve the function, safety, and beauty of our church building.
