Generosity is at the center of the religious experience. Some see giving to their religious community as giving thanks for the spirit of life, perhaps even giving thanks to a greater power. Others see such gifts as a way of promising a spiritual home to the next generation. Others have a vision of the community that they want to bring to life through their time, talent and treasure.

Creating a Culture of Generosity

Honoring our donors

Central Unitarian relies on the generosity of its members and friends to maintain its vibrant programming and to keep its doors open to all who search for religious home that offers a free and open search for meaning and spiritual diversity. We ask each of our members and friends to make the powerful, personal statement of a financial commitment to the congregation each year. As your faith grows and is nurtured here, so we hope your financial support will grow over time.

Ministering in Love

Indulge in the joy of giving as generously as you know how – consider giving at least 2% of your adjusted gross income. (See our Giving Guide for help in deciding the amount you pledge.) You will see the direct benefit in the health and vitality of your chosen religious home. You will have the pleasure of knowing that you are part of the foundation on which rests Central Unitarian’s mission to challenge us to become our best selves, minister to one another in love, and serve the greater community.

Pledge and Pay on REALM

Members and friends of Central Unitarian can make their pledge, manage payments and make one-time gifts to the congregation using our REALM member management system.  Go to REALM and log in.  If you need instructions for making and paying your pledge online, open this helpful document.

Other Ways to Give

The Endowment Trust Fund allows individuals to fund vital ministries of the church that are beyond the reach of our regular operating budget.  They may include capital improvements to our facilities as well as special programs in religious education, music and social outreach.
