As you consider your pledge, please reflect on the benefit that you receive from our congregation and the benefit to our larger community and world by the presence of First UU Columbus.

To fully bring life to our Mission and Vision and further increase church vitality, we are asking that each member consider increasing their pledge either:
•    to at least *5% of their adjusted annual income or
•    by 20% from their last year’s pledge

The projected per member cost of our budget is about $1,500.  As some of our members are still in high school or in financially stretched circumstances, please make your own pledge as generous (and realistic) as you can.

Determine your monthly income level  $______________
Select a Percent that reflects how you feel about First UU and your support of
its programs and social justice efforts. Many member choose 5% 
X  ________%
Multiply to determine Monthly Pledge = $___________
 

 

How do you feel about this amount?
• Is this amount representative of the significance of my ideals and values? 
• Is this amount in proportion to the importance of First UU in my life?
• Is this amount realistic given my personal financial circumstances?
