Sustaining Pledge

“Giving liberates the soul of the giver.” Maya Angelou

Sustaining pledges finance more than 80% of the congregation’s budget.  They provide a consistent level of support that is crucial to our ability to fulfill our mission and vision.   Each member of UUCSR is asked to make a sustaining pledge as an individual or as a household.

What is a pledge?
A pledge is a good faith commitment on record to support the congregation financially on an ongoing basis.  Pledges enable us to plan ahead because we can estimate how much income the congregation expects to receive.

How much should I give?
The amount of your pledge is an individual decision for each member or friend.  There is no required minimum.  We encourage you to think about what would be a “fair share” of your income.  To find out what that means for you, see our Suggested Giving Guide

We value your support at whatever level you are able to give.  Every pledge and donation is important and appreciated.

Financial contributions to UUCSR are tax-deductible.  UUCSR is a 501c3 organization. Our Tax ID number is 94-226-0393. Consult your tax professional for more details.

STEP 2: GIVING: How to fulfill your pledge

Making a pledge lets the congregation know how much you plan to contribute but does not, in itself, generate payment of your pledge. You will need to initiate the payment process.  The easiest way is to set up recurring withdrawals from your credit card or bank account.  Your pledge will be fulfilled automatically at regular intervals. You can go online at any time to monitor or change your giving.

You can also fulfill your pledge by check, mailed to the church office or placed in the Sunday collection.  Please write “Pledge” on the memo line so the office knows to credit the amount to your pledge.
