Gifts come in many forms—money, time, energy, passion, talent, and effort. We celebrate our responsibility in using these gifts well to support Unitarian Universalism here in our congregation and in our community.
WAYS TO GIVE
Note: if you are donating to fulfill a pledge commitment, to make record keeping easy on our end, please note that it is a pledge payment, along with the fiscal year it’s going towards (i.e. “Pledge 19-20”). Thank you!
Cash or Check
- Place in Sunday offering: Please place your cash or check in the offering basket during the Sunday worship service.
- Bring it by the church office: We are open Monday-Friday, 10-4.
- Mail to the church: UU Church, 2120 N. Fee Lane, Bloomington IN 47408
Credit Cards / Online Giving
We are currently changing how our online Donate page works (see below*), but we can still process new credit card and e-check payments using USAePay, our credit card processor. While we are in this transition, if you’d like to use a credit card, please call the office at 812-332-3695 and an administrative staff member can assist you. The security of your credit card information is important to us; we do not store any of this information in our office, either on paper or electronically. We accept MasterCard, Visa, or Discover. You may also make an e-check payment this way.
Online Bill Pay
Many banks and financial institutions offer a convenient online bill pay option. You can set up a one-time or recurring payment to the church, directly through your bank. The bank will cut the check for you and mail it directly to us. Call your bank for more information.
Stock Donations or Required Minimum Distributions
There may be tax advantages in giving appreciated stock or making direct contributions to the church through your IRA. Please consult with your broker or the administrator of your IRA for details on how to give this way. If you wish to make a donation of stock, please call 812-332-3695 for the name of the church’s brokerage firm. Click here for an article from our Treasurer on Tax Advantaged Giving.
Our congregation has an active Planned Giving program. Please click here for information about including the church in your estate planning.
* Our Donate Page Has Changed
Credit card security is an important issue in our world today. Because of the increasingly stringent rules governing online credit card transactions, and the expense associated with complying, the company that has supported the Donate page on our website for the last several years has discontinued this service.
However, if you have already set up a recurring pledge payment using our previous Donate page, that arrangement will continue without any interruption.
We will be deciding the best way to move forward with a new online Donate page in the next several months. In the meantime, we can still accept credit card transactions over the phone, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We follow industry guidelines in keeping your card information secure, and we do not keep copies of it here in our office, either on paper or electronically.
