Invest in the Future of UUCC during UUCC’s Annual Pledge Drive this year
Each spring, during our annual pledge drive, UUCC asks members and friends to make a promise of financial support (a pledge) for a 12 month calendar year period. What we raise during the pledge drive provides the funds that make the life of our congregation possible.
This year, we invite you to consider the ways you plan to invest in the future of UUCC through your time, talent, and financial treasure.
This spring we are investing in our future by updating our congregation’s Values, Mission, Ends — the detailed plans that reflect who we are together, and who we want to become as a congregation. We are investing in our future through our co-creation of a Covenant of Right Relations — a new tool to help us navigate our interactions so that our differences foster growth.
Together, we sustain and shape the health and future of our congregation and its ministries through our shared investment.
As we speak into the future of UUCC and its promise, we invite you to align your pledge with your investment in UUCC’s future; to view your pledge as an investment to the future we are building together. Each pledge acts as an investment in the future of UUCC, no matter the size.
Together we create, shape, and invest in our future.
And… giving goes beyond your financial support!
Along with pledging, we invest our time and talent at UUCC by attending worship services, volunteering, and becoming engaged in the many activities and ministries.
When you’re ready, complete the pledge form below for your financial treasure, as well as your time and talent.

While pledging is a covenantal responsibility of membership at UUCC, any congregant or friend of UUCC is invited to make a pledge. Together, our financial contributions make a difference in the congregation and in our community.
Together, we sustain and shape the health and future of our congregation and its ministries through our shared investment in UUCC. Each pledge received during the annual pledge drive acts as an investment in the future of UUCC — no matter the size — and fosters a sense of collective ownership and shared investment in our congregation.
You may have had experiences at other congregations where you were asked to tithe a certain amount of your paycheck or required to pay dues. UUCC does not set financial obligations for you to be part of our community. Because of that, we need some way to plan our budget for the next fiscal year. That’s why we do a pledge drive (or budget drive) each year to ask for your pledges.
Your pledge to UUCC helps us plan for our next twelve months of ministry together. The amount you pledge will determine what priorities we are able to set in our mission of meaning-making in community.
This year, we invite you to consider the ways you plan to invest in the future of UUCC through your financial treasure, as well as your time and talent.
Together, we sustain and shape the future of our congregation and its ministries through our shared investment.
In the past, UUCC members have shared tools like the Fair Share Guide or the decile breakdown to help you decide a pledge amount. These are helpful tools if you don’t know where to begin. Maybe investing in UUCC’s future means jumping up a decile or stretching to the next Fair Share commitment level.
It’s easy to make a pledge! Simply fill out our online form by clicking here.
You may have also received a letter in the mail with a paper form to fill out. If you would prefer not to fill out the online form, you can mail that paper form back to UUCC at 7246 Cradlerock Way, Columbia, MD 21045.
