Ways to Give
First Unitarian gratefully accepts donations from anyone who wishes to contribute to the justice work we do or to maintaining the magnificent, historic Meeting House that has graced Providence for more than 200 years.
To make a one-time donation, a memorial gift, or a gift in honor of someone, you can simply write a check and mail it to the church: First Unitarian Church of Providence, One Benevolent Street, Providence, RI 02906.
Most Sunday offering plate collections go toward First Unitarian programs and maintaining our buildings and grounds. However, once a month First Unitarian donates its non-pledge offering to a charitable cause, chosen by our Community Collections Committee.
We ask our members to make an annual pledge of support. See the following pages for more annual pledge information.
Our congregation has a long tradition of planned giving. The first bequest to our congregation was made in 1803. Members and friends have been following in that tradition ever since.
For over 200 years, these acts of giving have sustained and advanced the values, generosity, and reason that lie at the very core of our liberal faith.
We encourage all supporters to consider leaving a gift to the endowment in their will, thus automatically becoming a member of our Benevolent Society.
You can also give to First Unitarian through an IRA, annuity, life insurance policy, certificate of deposit, split interest asset, trust, or will. All gifts of any size are gratefully welcomed.
