Giving at Foothills Unitarian

At Foothills, our budget reflects our deepest values. 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. 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. 

Gifts to this fund directly support our day-to-day church operations. We value being a just employer and maintaining a welcoming and safe building. By donating to this fund, you are helping ensure we can continue to function in alignment with these values and continue to serve our community for years to come. Please consider making a recurring donation by selecting a frequency under the drop-down on

This work of unleashing courageous love and building the Beloved Community – a world free from oppression – requires all of us: our time, our passions, and our resources.

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.
