It is through your generous support that the UUCC is able to offer life-changing programming, support our dedicated staff and maintain our much-used building – all a means to an end in fulfilling our mission: Challenged by our liberating faith, we discover deeper spiritual meaning, nurture loving community, cultivate courageous connections, and partner in the work of justice. Your financial relationship to our congregation means a great deal to our members and to those in the larger community aided and inspired by our witness.
Take time to consider how the UUCC has had a positive impact on your life and the lives of those you care about. We ask all members to consider giving at least 5% of their gross household income. Recognizing that every member’s circumstances are different, we ask that you pledge as generously as you are able, believing that a generous financial commitment to your religious community invites a deeper engagement with that community.
YEAR-ROUND STEWARDSHIP AND PLEDGING
As a pledging member, you will be assigned a month from September to June, which becomes your stewardship renewal month. If a different month works better for you, just let us know. During your stewardship renewal month, you will be sent stewardship materials and asked to assess your current monthly pledge and confirm or change it. This will be your ongoing monthly commitment to the congregation until you tell us to stop or change it. Pledge payments may be made using cash, checking account, credit card or stock. Please be aware that the UUCC will be charged a fee for payments made by credit card. For those who prefer to make stock donations, please contact our Director of Administration, Alesia Hutto, at Alesia@uuccharlotte.org. If you have general questions about stewardship, contact Kelly Greene at Kelly@uuccharlotte.org.
You can make a pledge at any time by using this link.
