UUCM IS ON AMAZON SMILE!
UUCM is now registered as a qualifying charitable organization with the Amazon Smile program (smile.amazon.com).  UUCM Members and Friends can shop with Amazon, and a percentage of the amount spent on their purchases will be given to the church. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customer. To get started, simply use this link.  This will select UUCM as your charitable organization. In order for your purchases to qualify, you must shop from https://smile.amazon.com.  If you shop from https://www.amazon.com your purchases will not be counted for UUCM.  For more information about the Amazon Smile program, please click here.

The youth group raise money by our contributions to metal recycling at Express Metal Recycling.  If you are not sure what they accept, click here to see what household goods you can donate. They are located in Hopkins.  Please let them know that your donation is for the UUCM Youth Fund.

Donations to this fund are directed to local groups that provide services to those in need, and to state, national organizations working on behalf of issues important to UUs. Each month the Social Justice Ministry chooses a new cause to support. All of the cash collected in the Sunday Offertory are placed into this fund. Other donations are welcome as well. You can learn more here.

For more than 50 years, UUCM has relied on the generosity of our Members and our Friends to finance the church. Thank you for considering a gift to UUCM in support of our mission to “inspire, educate, and serve.”

2017-18 STEWARDSHIP CAMPAIGN: "Growing 2030 Possibilities"

How do I give to UUCM?

OTHER AREAS YOU CAN SUPPORT

Online Pledge Forms: There are two parts to this year's pledge:

Social Generosity  Fund

Learn More

Special fundraisers are held throughout the year to support some other specific causes within the church. The largest such fund is the Youth Fund, which supports special programming for Children and Youth, including the annual youth leadership school and youth trips (e.g. Heritage trip to Boston, General Assembly, service trips).  Each week loose change in the offering basket goes to youth fund activities.

Giving Guide:   If you are new to pledging, you may find this UUA guide helpful.

UUCM recently established an endowment fund to accept legacy gifts and provide a strong financial foundation for the future of the church. Consider making provisions for a legacy gift to the endowment fund in your will.

Our annual Stewardship Campaign will run from March 5 - April 2, 2017.  This year’s campaign differs from our past campaign in that it has two parts: our annual “Pledge Drive” for the 2017-18 Operating Budget, and a smaller “Capital Campaign” for our Building Fund.  The Pledge Drive is our priority, as we seek to increase our budget by 17% to cover the loan payments and increased costs of the new building. Your participation is vital – please join us!
