“Stewardship is not about asking for money. It is about what kind of people our mission calls us to become and about how a community of faith uses its resources to serve with love, compassion and integrity.”
Whether you are a founding or longtime member, a friend or newcomer, you understand that SUUS truly is a congregation formed out of community. It is the community of ideas, of values and support that brings us together. It is this caring, and generous group that shapes this congregation and our commitment to be together. Generosity in the Unitarian Universalist congregation is what allows the congregation to care for and support one another.
This is the meaning of stewardship; to care for one another and take responsibility to sustain our community. Each Unitarian Universalist congregation is self-sustaining: our primary source of income is from our members who make financial gifts to the congregation. We know that if this congregation and this faith are to live into the future for our children and grandchildren, we must care for this institution and keep it strong and healthy.
In the new year, SUUS will offer meetings to inform and educate our members and friends about Planned Giving. New tax laws make it easier to pledge and leave gifts that have tax advantages to the donors. You can also indicate your interest on the SUUS Pledge Card/Info Sheet
