Support our Efforts as a Sanctuary Host Congregation

As a result of our vote to become a Sanctuary Congregation, our major renter terminated their lease, resulting in a budget gap of $35,000 between now and June 30. We are fundraising to cover that gap. You can help us by donating here.

Or you may write a check to UUCB with a memo: “Rental Replacement.” Mail to 5001 Pennsylvania Ave. Boulder, CO 80303

Leave a legacy of giving beyond your lifetime to ensure the continued good work of UUCB! In return for a planned gift, donors and their families may receive important estate and income tax benefits. All sizes of gifts are welcome and may include: a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate, gifts of real estate, and gifts that use retirement and insurance plan benefits.

Your generosity will help assure that our beacon of liberal religion will continue to shine brightly in our world!

 

Fundraisers

Each fall, the church holds a silent auction where you can donate and bid on events, services and items. This is a fun and easy way to contribute to the church.  The auction website: http://www.togetherauction.com/uuchurchofboulder is open year-round.  In the late summer/fall donations and bids can be made on line and on selected dates at church.  After the Auction is over donors and bidders can look up what was offered and won.  Hosts sponsoring an event can see who is coming and email participants.  Questions can be sent to auctionuucb@gmail.com including login questions.

 

In addition, every Sunday after the worship service, you can buy rechargeable gift cards redeemable at local grocery stores and other venues. When you use one of these cards, the retailer returns a percentage of your purchase to the church.

Building Use

Encourage your friends to use our building for their events and meetings.

Endowment Fund

One of the best ways to support UUCB’s long-term financial health is to contribute to the endowment fund, which is overseen by a three-member Endowment Committee. The fund’s guidelines require that the church use yearly interest distributions for congregation-initiated proposals for capital improvements of the building and grounds (75%) and community outreach projects (25%). The church does not use the fund for operating expenses. More information about the endowment fund is available at the church office.
