Stewardship includes all the ways we care for our congregation. Financial gifts, gifts of time, and gifts of talent are our love and commitment made visible. We hope that all aspects of stewardship can be as much about continually growing a spirit of generosity as they are about obligation and responsibility.
We are currently in Open Pledging!
for the upcoming financial year. If you have questions about your pledge last year, you can check the church database or contact church administrator Carol Marks.

There are several options for making financial gifts to UUCB:
Our operating budget
Our operating budget is the way that the church is able to cover all the costs associated with operating the church including minister and staff salary, building and grounds upkeep and maintenance, programming, an outreach.
The Operating budget is supported through:
- Annual Pledge Campaign
- Sunday Plate Donations
- Focused Fundraising Events
Our Special Purposes Fund
The Special Purposes Fund (SPF) supports the Church’s religious, charitable, educational and civic purposes beyond activities under the normal operating budget, via management of both endowment and general funds. It accepts both direct donations and donations from estates through Planned Giving.
In 2014-2015 a donation to the SPF was made by Harv Hegarty and donations were received in memory of Robin Black-Schaffer, Gabe Langdon, and Gene Lawlis. The SPF supplied funds for grounds improvements, Reverend Wadkins’s moving expenses, special choir music, and a variety of social justice projects endorsed by the Social Justice Funds Committee. Details are in the 2015 Annual Report.
Contributions to SPF may be made through
- Direct Donations
- Planned Giving
