Year Three of our RACE TO 300
Pledge Form for Church Year from
July 2016 - June 2017
We continue with our seven-year initiative that honors the Congregation's 300th anniversary approaching in 2020. The
Race to 300 aims to set modest annual goals to gradually eliminate our
dependency on the Property Fund Endowment for our annual operating
costs. In doing so, these funds can be reserved for needed capital
improvements. We have been successful in meeting these incremental goals so far,
and look forward to another successful year in 2017 together.

Your financial commitment allows First Unitarian to budget its
operating expenses and continue our work for social justice, fellowship and spiritual growth.
We are the stewards of the church for the next generations - just as those past kept it financially healthy for us!
we ask you to take part in
Building for our Future Ministry
- registering a pledge so the church can budget with confidence
- increasing your household's pledge amount to at least $5 per week (that's $250 annually)
- increasing your annual pledge by 5%. Please see this guide for help calculating that amount.
Your pledge will become part of the operating budget for the full church year (July 2016 to June 2017).
Pledges of support can be paid in a one-time sum, or over the course of the year as you choose -
including by cash in the weekly offering at service. Ask a Greeter or Usher at service how to register your offering.
Many households pay towards their commitments incrementally, by setting up an automatic monthly
payment through their bank accounts. See the Automatic Giving item in our Pledging FAQ for more information on how your household can set up small, recurring payments online or at your local bank branch,
