A Note About End of Year Giving
With December well under way, I just wanted to send a few reminders about end-of-year gifts to UUC.
If you are intending to send a personal check or bill-pay check that you want reflected in your 2019 tax statement from UUC (to be sent in January 2020), please make certain that the date of the check is no later than December 31. If you are sending a stock gift to the church, you will need to arrange with your broker to ensure the transfer is initiated before December 31. These gifts as well as online gifts submitted through UUC Connect by December 31 will be included in your 2019 tax statement as well. Please ensure that payments are clearly marked as either operating gifts or gifts to the capital campaign for the church building.
During our year away from the church construction site, many households appear to have missed the spring pledge campaign for the July 2019 – June 2020 operating year. If you didn’t get a chance to participate and would like a year-end gift to be applied to a new pledge, please just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your total intended pledge and I’ll enter it in your UUC Connect record for you. Gifts can then be applied to that pledge as they arrive.
If you have any questions about your currently active pledges for operations or the building, or any gift information that appears or has not yet appeared in UUC Connect, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com or Chris Budd, our accountant, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She and I would be glad to help you.
Thank you for considering UUC in your end-of-year giving! Best wishes for the holiday season and an exciting new year.
