Each year around the month of March, members and friends of First Unitarian are urged to make a commitment of their financial support for the church in the upcoming fiscal year — July through June. The amount pledged becomes the basis for the church’s new annual budget that supports staffing, programs, and all our infrastructure.
This year our 2018-19 Commitment Drive kicks off on March 4th with the theme The Fire of Commitment. For the details of the drive read or download a copy of the brochure by clicking here or on the image at the right. For more details on pledging, read the FAQ below, or click on the link in the left menu for the Annual Pledge Form.
First Unitarian continues an ongoing effort to reduce reliance on our endowment to support annual operations. Our goals are to achieve long-term financial health and to honor our responsibility to those who will inherit what many generations before us have built and handed to us.
