We are a thriving and growing congregation that makes an impact every day in our local community, our nation, and our world through our progressive spiritual practice and our collective financial donations.
The Heritage UU Church Board of Trustees has set a goal of increasing our collective financial support of this beloved church by 6% this year, or just $13,000. For the new fiscal year, which begins July 1, the following are our budgeting priorities:
Provide simple, basic cost-of-living increases to our ministerial, music, administrative, and childcare staff.
Operationalize the costs associated with the safety and security of our church facility.
Maintain our financial health while adjusting our expected fundraising income (from events and activities like our auction, football parking, Kroger cards, plant sales, etc.) to a more realistic figure, based on past experience. The Board would like to bring our fund-raising goal down by about 17%, and we’ll need to fill that roughly $3,000 gap with regular pledges.
The average pledge at Heritage is currently $1,700. A 6% increase to the average pledge would be an increase of about $100 per year.
