UUSGS – and the ministry we offer the wider community – thrives because of the support of sustaining 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, from refugee partnerships to interfaith solidarity and engagement – and it all takes money to make it work.
Become a sustaining giver today, and help ensure that UUSGS remains a beacon of love and justice in the Pioneer Valley. Even a small monthly gift makes a big difference. 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.
