UUSGS – and the ministry we offer our wider community – thrives because of the support of our members and friends. UUSGS offers a wide variety of programming and activities – from youth events to feeding the hungry, from dynamic worship services to arts programming that serves the entire Pioneer Valley – and it all takes money to make it work. Truly, we are grateful for every contribution! Every donation makes a difference!
At UUSGS, we want you to have confidence that your donation will be used to maximum effect. The congregation’s primary staff lead in finance is Marie Krause, Business Administrator, a CPA by trade who brings 30+ years of financial expertise. Safeguards are in place at every level to ensure compliance with stated policy. And every year, our annual budget is vetted and approved by the full congregation, ensuring full transparency and a strong connection between the congregation’s stated goals and actual spending. Not many congregations can say this! … which is to say, we take money seriously at UUSGS, so that you can have confidence in your donations.
We’re pleased to offer online giving through FaithStreet, a reputable and secure processor of online payments, one-time or recurring. A link may be found above. Please contact the UUSGS office if you have any difficulty using the online donation form.
If you are able to provide us with an annual pledge, we welcome it. Pledges enable us to plan well for the coming year. You may download a pledge form HERE. A letter that accompanies the form is available HERE.
You can also support UUSGS every time you shop at Amazon. We have registered (under our legal name, Third Congregational Society) on Amazon Smile, which offers a small percentage (0.5%) back to non-profit organizations like us. Here’s a link to our Amazon Smile account.
