Annual pledges help congregations like ours to be able to budget accurately year to year. Put plainly, good planning means that we can be more effective in putting every dollar we raise to good effect in bringing more love into the world.
If this is your first time making a pledge, right on! Congratulations!! We encourage you to think about giving as a spiritual practice
, and to plan your annual giving as a percentage of your income. Being intentional like this - no matter how much money you have or make - feels really empowering. And great things are possible when we all work together!Interested in giving as a spiritual practice? A giving guide is available by clicking here.
It also contains information on how each dollar donated to UUSGS is put to good use.
You can make payments on your pledge at any time throughout the year and watch your progress bar fill up! Automatic, online payments are preferred (and super easy - click here to get started!)
... but we can also accept checks, credit/debit cards, even investments and corporate or foundation gifts. Try giving automatically every other week, or even weekly; if you're doing this already, try increasing it a bit. At the end of a year, you may be surprised by what you were able to do!
If at any time you have questions, please contact Denise Benoit at Denise@UUSpringfield.org
. (In the event your life changes substantially and you are unable to meet your commitment, pledges can be adjusted during the year. Please just let us know!)
