Keep Our Flame Burning Through Generosity

“Giving connects two people, the giver and the receiver, and this connection gives birth to a new sense of belonging.”   -Deepak Chopra

No one is treated differently because of the amount of money they pledge to our church.

  • Grow your own generosity
  • Support others on their paths

We are all on our own journey.

How much should your pledge be?

While there are various guides to calculate your pledge, the best guide is to “give until it feels good.”  It is only through our pledges that the new year is set in motion.  While other charities you support receive contributions from many other people, our church depends solely upon us.  As you think about the size of your pledge, consider what makes this church special to you and unique in the community.  Your generosity affirms your commitment to the UUCTC and to its future.  The Unitarian Universalist Association encourages members to contribute 2% to 10% of their income as they are able.

*A pledging unit is a “household.”  It might be a single person, a couple, or a family.

Together, we support each other in our life journeys and work toward social justice in the local and world communities.  Last year, members and friends responded generously to the annual call for support.  The average pledge was $2,197.
