Giving to FUSN

Strong Communities Need Support

Annual Budget Drive

More than 70 percent of FUSN’s operating budget is funded by annual pledges from members and friends of the congregation. The Annual Budget Drive each March–April promotes connections among people in the congregation, raises awareness of FUSN’s financial picture, and secures commitments of contributions for the coming fiscal year (June 1–May 31).

Please review the Goals and Giving Guide to understand this year’s financial objectives and how to determine your own fair share.

Pledging Parties

This year, because of the huge popularity and success of last year’s pledging parties, we are continuing the party tradition. You will again have the opportunity to make your confidential pledge in the context of a pledging party, sharing inspiration and fellowship with other members of our congregation.

You can reach the Annual Budget Drive Committee at budgetdrive [at] fusn [dot] org.

If you can't make a pledge party, please fill out the pledge form and mail it into the FUSN office.

Special Collections

Each Sunday, the congregation makes a symbolic contribution to support the work of FUSN. A few Sundays a year, FUSN has a Special Collection to benefit an external program or organization selected by the Council on Social Action.


Planned Giving

The Planned Giving Committee provides education about strategies that people of all income levels can use to plan post-retirement gifts to FUSN. Learn how to make a gift of stock.
