Supporting our church’s mission of authenticity, compassion and transformation helps us focus beyond our personal boundaries to become part of something greater than ourselves. By deepening our generosity through gifts of time, talent and treasure, we can experience greater joy and meaning in our lives.

Opportunities to give at Second Unitarian take on several different forms of generosity:

Time and Talent – We ask that you share your time and talent, whether it is brewing a pot of coffee for Sunday morning fellowship, sprucing up the church during spring cleaning, providing a meal to a family in need, or singing in the choir during Sunday morning worship. More

Annual Financial Pledge – Each year during our spring pledge drive, we ask that you make a financial pledge, which you will then fulfill throughout the upcoming church year. The amount is up to you! You determine your fair share of the church’s needs, in light of your income and means, and the fact that generous contributions from others in the past have sustained and built the church we enjoy today.

To foster generosity, the pledge drive includes stewardship conversations — one-on-one chats over coffee, small-group meetings in members’ homes or church-wide dinners. These conversations build and enhance the church community through personal contacts and provide a time for each of us to reflect on what the church means to us.

Fundraising Events – The Fundraising Team plans one or more community-building fundraising events each year.

Planned Giving – Members of the Endowment Committee can help you explore various types of planned giving. Please inform the committee if you have arranged for a future gift, such as leaving a charitable bequest to Second Unitarian in your will or living trust.
