Pledge – FY2018-19

Pledge – FY2018-19

Let’s leave UUCC better than we found it.

Thus We Pledge . . . to

  • Take care of our people
  • Take care of our community
  • Take care of our future

We encourage you to

  • Pledge online (just scroll down!)
  • Complete pledges early
  • Be a Fair Share donor
  • Pledge for the first time or jump your decile

These all give you chances to win the incentive raffle!

We can only do it if every member makes a pledge of financial support.

First, remember.


Remember an uplifting or infuriating sermon. Remember Michael Adcock playing beautifully and the choir’s soaring voices. Remember the children skipping out of the sanctuary after the Time for All Ages. Remember the amazement and joy on the faces of people of color driving by our Black Lives Matter Vigil.  Remember the gratitude on the faces of our guests at the Warm Welcome Shelter.  These, and many more programs, are the core of UUCC and why we are members of this community.

Second, review.


Review the budget priorities that were determined at the congregational meeting on January 21, as well as the draft budget itself. We aim to raise $875,000 in pledges – an increase of 16% over last year. Review the adjustments in compensation for our staff. Review the effort to move to full Fair Share payments to our denomination in three years. Review the support for our local community through Cradlerock Children’s Center and PATH. It is through this financial support that we create the programs that are at the core of UUCC.

Third, consider.


Consider making a Fair Share pledge. The Fair Share Giving Guide suggests a pledge based on each household’s personal financial situation and the level of engagement in the life of our congregation. If you are already making a Fair Share pledge, consider “moving to the right” on the guide by becoming a Visionary or Transformer.

Fourth, pledge.


Please make your confidential pledge here:

  • Congregational Goal is $875,000 - we can do this!
    Please indicate if you are making a fair share pledge based on the giving guide. There's a thank-you party to be planned!

Thank you for your continued support of UUCC and the presence of Liberal Religion in Howard County, in Maryland, and in the US. icon-fire
