Thank you for your generosity!

Your Contribution Can Make a Difference!

We can grow our spiritual development through the practice of the art of giving or giving to others, donating to charity, or even volunteering a service. It can also be developed by offering our skills with utmost sincerity and dedication to those who need them. Being more generous in our actions, behaviors and personality will help in growing our personal spiritual development.

The Art of Giving

There are many opportunities to give financially to UUCM such as; make a one-time donation, make an annual stewardship pledge, give to the endowment (in memory of or in tribute to someone), and volunteer. UUCM is a tax-exempt organization under section 501c3 and all donations are tax deductible.

If you prefer to make a contribution via check, simply mail a check to the church at:

Please designate in the memo line whether your check is to make a general donation, to pay on your pledge (please include the pledge year), or to give to the Share-the-Plate monthly partner.

Either using your bank’s online banking platform, or visiting your bank, you can set up your UUCM contribution or Pledge as a “bill” and then relax…your bank will send a check to the church on the date(s) you specify. In addition, UUCM will get the whole amount – no fees deducted!

Annual Pledge

Each Unitarian Universalist Church is member owned and sustained. Our annual budget allows us to live out our mission and shared values. It provides the opportunities to grow, give back and reach out. More than 90% of our budget comes from annual commitments made through pledges by UUCM members and friends. 

Each spring we host our annual stewardship campaign which is vital to ensuring we continue to serve our members, our friends, and our greater community. Members and Friends are asked to complete the 2023-24 Pledge Form.

Because of your financial support, this congregation is able to continue its influence and good works in our community.
