Thoughts on Giving

Giving is one of life’s great satisfactions, especially when you know that your gifts will improve the lives of others. As members and friends of UUCB, many of us give of our time, talent and treasure in many different ways. Whether it is volunteer work or making an annual pledge, these are the gifts that maintain the daily operation of our church. UUCB is a large operation (see: how church finances work), and requires strong support from all its members at whatever level they can afford. Please give generously.

Single gifts

Give in the moment: make donations as the spirit moves you. use cash or an envelope (in the pews), and submit it in the offering plate or through the office mail slot

Pledging

Give regularly for each fiscal year: make a pledge of regular support for UUCB (see below). See our Stewardship Page.

Endowment

Give for the long term: make a gift to the UUCB Endowment


 

Online giving

Online: We are in the midst of setting up and launching InFellowship, a portal for “just plain folk” to an online information management system, called Fellowship One. We hope that Fellowship One will help keep UUCB organized, and more effectively provide the information services we need.

  • Phase 1: (available now) Create a profile (access InFellowship).
  • Phase 2: (beginning) Use the services to manage UUCB information (eg., directories, mailing lists, searching).
  • Phase 3: (sometime, we hope) Use the services to make gifts.
