On Sunday, January 14, 2018, we will engaging our generosity in a special offering in support of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Promise and Practice of Our Faith campaign.
(Click here for a message from our UUA President, Rev. Susan-Fredrick Gray.)
From the UUA:
Imagine what our faith would look like if we upheld and centered the history, the perspectives, the voices, and the leadership of Black Lives of Unitarian Universalists [BLUU]…
The Promise and the Practice of Our Faith Campaign is our opportunity to take the lead as a faith denomination in addressing our history of upholding white supremacy. Together, we can collectively work to dismantle it and amend a long broken promise to the Black Lives within our Association.
Congregations are invited to make a financial commitment in support of the UUA’s commitment to BLUU that is transformational and inspirational and which helps fulfill a $1 million match opportunity (double the impact of your contribution by meeting the threshold of $10 per certified member, or however you count the souls you serve).
How does the congregational match work?
In order to qualify for a match, each participating UU congregation must collect or raise at least the equivalent of $10 per member or soul served (as self-reported on the pledge form). Every gift matters. We want each and every UU congregation to be part of this vital work for our faith. If your congregation is able to meet the threshold of $10 per member, your contribution will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, by our generous donors.
On January 14, 2018, we are asking all members and friends to contribute to this special offering. Our goal is to contribute at least $10 per member to the campaign, so that our impact may be doubled. Please consider making a special contribution of at least $10. If you are able, please consider a larger contribution to help cover our friends who may be unable to hit the $10 mark.
