There are two primary ways to financially support First U’s mission and ministries: a one time donation, or an annual commitment.

Make a donation

A donation is a one-time gift of any size. You can designate your donation for general use or a special purpose. Making a donation to the First Unitarian does not obligate you to an annual commitment.  To make a donation online, click below:


Make an annual commitment

You can make an annual commitment by pledging a specific amount of financial support for the church’s fiscal year. Your annual commitment is extremely important because the money pledged is used to build the church budget, which supports almost everything the church does.

You can make your annual commitment in several ways:

  • You can pledge on-line by clicking below:


  • You can return a filled-out paper pledge card to the church office by postal mail or dropping it off. To download and print the pledge card, click here.
