We’re Almost There!

As you know, we are in the final phases of our $17 million Building Campaign.   At our Town Hall last month, the team announced that we were just $311,000 shy of our goal of $17 million.  Most of you have probably seen the flaming chalice at the entrance, tracking our progress.  We’re pleased to announce that since that the Town Hall, with new and increased pledges, we’ve raised nearly $90,000 more, leaving us about $225,000 short of our goal!

We are deeply grateful to those of you who have pledged—a full three quarters of our membership!—and we’ve been moved and inspired by how many of you have increased your pledges!

Here’s how you can help get us over the finish line:

  • If you have not already made a pledge, please participate. Pledges of all amounts are meaningful and valued, and payments for the Building Campaign can  be spread out over five years.
  • If you have already made a pledge, we ask that you consider joining the dozens of fellow members of who have increased their pledges to the Building Campaign.  Any increase is meaningful, and they add up quickly!  If we all     increased our pledges by even 10%, we would easily reach our goal.
  • Have you considered putting UUC in your estate plans? Now through the end of 2018, a simple documentation of your legacy gift qualifies for a 1-to-10 match       and could be worth up to $10,000 toward the Building Campaign in 2019! Contact member Ken Mundt (kenmundt@msn.com or 206-325-5067) for details.

No matter which strategy you choose, your commitment will help us reach our goals now and reduce our reliance on short-term financing, ensuring that UUC will be home to future generations.  Thank you for your support of our beloved community!
