How Much Should We Give?
An easy way to determine your annual contributions to your church is from this chart in Wayne Clark’s book, Beyond Fundraising.
The left column is your adjusted annual income, which can be found using this calculator. Moving from left to right in the chart represents increases in levels of commitment to the church, usually seen over time. If you feel like DUUC means more to you now than ever before, please consider moving to the right in this chart. Our church needs committed members to make generous pledges so we may grow our congregation.
Mark your calendar: March 10th is Commitment Sunday. It is a musical celebration not to be missed. We will be collecting pledge cards at the end of the service, so please give the above some consideration before that day.

Fundraising activities for our church are governed by the Fundraising Policy approved by our Board of Trustees. Our main fundraising activities are the annual Canvass and the annual Goods and Services Auction. We also have an Endowment Fund.
The Annual Budget Drive Committee organizes a program to communicate with members regarding responsible pledging toward the annual operating budget of the church. Often other congregation-inclusive events are scheduled into the yearly budget drive activities.
To contact the Annual Budget Drive Committee, find the current contact information on our Committee Contacts page.
We are currently involved in a Capital Campaign to raise money for a building addition. All church members have been contacted in a phased approach which began in Fall 2007. For current information, visit the Building Team and Capital Campaign news page.
The 2012 Goods and Services Auction, SPACE: The UU Frontier, will be held Saturday, November 3rd. The doors will open at 4:30 pm. Tickets at the door are $12 ($6 for first timers). Dinner will be served to those who bought tickets in advance; sadly, there can be no guarantee of a meal when you get your ticket at the door.
