Share Our Plate

When you donate to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder, you practice generosity and support the work we do to create love, justice, and peace in the world. We receive no financial support beyond that offered by members, friends, and those who rent our building. You can donate several ways.

In Person, by Mail, or Online

You can make a donation to the church through the offering basket on Sundays, or by mailing a check (payable to UUCB) to:

5001 Pennsylvania Ave
Boulder, CO 80303

You may also donate online using a credit card or Paypal account:


Pledge

If you are a member of UUCB, or even someone who is not a member but wants to help, we invite you to become a Fair Share Giver using the Fair Share Contribution Guide developed by the UUA. Fair Share Givers commit between 2 percent and 10 percent of their household income, based on their ability to give and their commitment to our church. You can obtain a pledge card at the church office and indicate a financial commitment that you will pay monthly. We build our annual budget based on these financial commitments.

Please see our 2017/18 proposed priorities, see the Canvass Brochure and Pledge Card here!

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://togetherauction.com/uuchurchofboulder.org 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 uucbauction@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.

Bequests and Memorial Gifts

Whether you are writing your first will or updating an existing one, we hope you’ll include a gift to UUCB in your plans. You can use your will to give a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a specific item, such as real estate. No gift is too small. Email us if you would like to receive sample bequest language to include in your will or to share with your attorney.

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.
