Quick Letter about all the Spontaneous Generosity from Members and Friends!

Dear Members and Friends,

Thank you all for your help with this year’s budget, including thoughtful participation in the May 22 Congregational Meeting. We will continue the meeting this Sunday after the 10:00 service in order to finalize our congregational budget for 2011-12.

Since the meeting many people have raised their pledges. Several angels have raised their pledges by $250 to $1000. Many more have raised by amounts from $5 a month to $250 a year. And many people have made one-time gifts on top of their pledge. Our total pledges for the coming year are over 2% larger than last year. Thank you all for your generosity! We are much closer to a budget that does not include staff cuts or furloughs.

If you’ve been thinking about raising your pledge or making a one-time donation but haven’t done so yet, it would help if we knew before the weekend. This will help in our final budget considerations in our congregational meeting after church. No amounts are too large. And none are too small as they show you are involved in ways you can. All gifts are valued and appreciated. Please email Michele Ebler michele@uuss.org with any change in your pledge or any gift you would like to make. Or you may download a pledge revision form at this link.

We know these are difficult times for many people. Your support of our religious community is heartwarming.

Your Board of Trustees,
