FUUSN needs your support to thrive!

Help us meet our 2020 Budget Drive goal of raising $635,000, a 7% increase over last year. If you’ve pledged before, we hope you will consider increasing your pledge by 7% or better yet, moving up to the next giving level. 

  • FUUSN’s worship, religious education, music, and social justice activities are engaging us in large numbers. New people are arriving, staying, and feeling connected.
  • Our pledges constitute two-thirds of FUUSN’s revenue. Our largest single pledge is less than 3% of the funds we need to raise. We rely on EVERYONE pledging to reach our goal!
  • The cost of keeping FUUSN running exceeds $2800 per household and our average pledge is $2050.

How your donations will be used

Your contribution to the budget drive will help support our congregation now and in the future.

We aim to raise $635,000 this year to fullfill two goals:

  1. Continue and enhance current FUUSN Activities.
    FUUSN is bursting with valuable activities, and they cost money to run (see chart below). We aim to continue to fund all the activities and services you love at FUUSN and include a 3% cost of inflation in our budget.
  2. Support future growth by restoring the Membership Coordinator to a full-time position within 24 months.
    Restoring the Membership Coordinator to a full-time position will allow FUUSN to strengthen congregational engagement and attract new members through energetic outreach.

Where does FUUSN’s money come from and where does it go?

Pledges cover 2/3rds of FUUSN’s costs.

How much should you give?

Your pledge is a personal decision. We are hopeful many will be able to pledge in amounts consistent with FUUSN’s financial needs, outlined below. However, every pledge, in any amount, is meaningful. Here are some things to consider:

  • FUUSN is the spiritual community that gives us and our loved ones support, sustenance, and friendship, both in times of celebration and in times of need.
  • The Unitarian Universalist Association guidelines challenge us to consider giving at least 2% to 10% of income.
  • Making a financial investment in our present and future well being is an expectation of all participants in the FUUSN community
  • FUUSN spends substantially more on each of us than it receives in pledges, using other sources of income.The cost of keeping FUUSN running exceeds $2800 per household. Our average pledge is $2050.
