We Are Building A New Way . . . .

The way we handle money says a lot about our values. Our spending habits should reflect our religious values. People have a genuine spirit of generosity. We are not called to survive, but to serve. We want to make a difference.

How much should you give? Foothills Unitarian is completely self-supporting. Please, give at the most generous level that fits your values, your finances and your experience of Foothills. An old maxim is “Give 10% to the church, save 10%, and live on the rest.”. (Want to tithe?)

Some religious traditions set dues or rent pews. Some appeal continually for money. At Foothills Unitarian, we ask for your annual pledge based on the Unitarian Universalist Association Fair Share Giving Guide. The UUA suggests either a full 10% tithe as a way to live out your spiritual principles, or if this is not possible, an amount between 2% and 9%.

Our recommendation this year is that each household give 5%. Every situation is different. Some people might have had great luck with the stock market recently, while others might have lost their jobs. We appreciate your thoughtful consideration of your pledge. We gratefully receive all gifts to the church as they support the important work we do together.
