ERUUF is a spiritual home for 735 members, friends, and visitors. Our thriving community is also a beacon for individuals and groups aligned with our liberal religious mission and values. We build our budget based on pledges, so your support is vital to ERUUF’s fiscal health in the upcoming year. Here’s what a few of our members had to say about why they
give to ERUUF.
2018 brought abundant growth to ERUUF —membership has increased, members are more engaged than ever, and lives have been transformed through our services and ministries. ERUUF is in excellent condition because of our members’ tremendous involvement and generosity. Our focus now is to sustain ERUUF’s growth. It takes a village to offer our programs consistently, and it takes a good deal of staff time to organize the village. This great progress we achieved together requires generous financial support from all of us to sustain.
The amount you pledge is entirely up to you. When your values and ERUUF’s mission align, we encourage a pledge that makes you proud to be doing your part in this beloved community.
Need help calculating your annual pledge amount? See the UUA Fair Share Giving Guide. The table shows the suggested giving levels per pledging household. This guide was developed by the UUA and is used by many UUA congregations.
Please consider supporting ERUUF’s mission and vision for 2019-2020 with an increased annual pledge.
1. A pledge is your promise to give a certain amount of money to the congregation within the upcoming fiscal year to help sustain our growth.
Pledge online or paper pledge card in Sunday pew rack
2. A contribution is a payment to ERUUF (cash, check, credit card or stock transfer).
Sign up for auto-draft to become a sustainer. Much of ERUUF’s financial support comes from sustainers. That means people pay their pledge through automatic drafts on a regular basis. Drafts come from checking accounts, debit or credit cards.
Setting up your automatic draft is now digital. Just go to the Give Now page and set up your recurring gift. Set up recurring gift now
What is the Pledge Drive About?
The pledge drive offers members, friends, and visitors the opportunity to think about what ERUUF means to them and to pledge their financial support accordingly. Your pledge, with others, helps define the budget for the next fiscal year, July 1-June 30. The pledge drive involves 4-6 weeks of planned stewardship activities in February-March, but pledges are welcomed anytime during the year
