At Foothills, our budget reflects our deepest values, such as what most needs care and attention in people’s lives, what it means to be a just employer, and where we most need to invest in our future to feed our vision for building the Beloved Community – a world free of oppression in all forms. There are no “them” in our church. Our church is 100% “us.” Everything we do, from our justice work to our community service, from cultivating the next generation of children to embrace progressive values to offering transformative programs for adults, is supported financially by the people of Foothills. We do things this way because we believe it aligns with our values. We are truly grateful for the gifts we have been given. That is what giving at Foothills is fundamentally about. Giving is an expression of gratitude for the gifts we have been given. It is our way of passing it on so courageous love may reach others. 

Share The Plate

During most weekly offering, we Share The Plate 50/50 with a community partner who is making a difference in Northern Colorado lives. Some of the community organizations we’ve shared the plate with recently, include the Immigrant Freedom Fund, Alliance for Suicide Prevention, and the Food Bank of Larimer County.

Make a Pledge Payment

This work of unleashing courageous love and building the Beloved Community requires all of us: our time, our passions, and our resources. Because our work requires so much and is 100% funded by the members of our Foothills Community, we ask everyone who participates at Foothills to learn about and pursue a path to giving at 5% of their income. Interested in learning more? Click HERE to find your place on the path to 5%. No matter what stage you are on your journey, no matter your income or church background, there is a step that will fit you.

Please consider setting up a recurring donation.

Ministerial Discretionary Fund

Everyone needs help sometimes. The Ministerial Discretionary Fund allows the ministers to help out members of our community when they’re in a tough spot or support un-budgeted needs within the church or organizations doing work that aligns with our values. Whether it’s helping pay a medical bill, moving assistance, or something else, the Ministerial Discretion Fund ensures we can help even when other community resources or services don’t already exist or can’t provide what’s needed.
