Pledging, or making a promise of financial support, is a central Unitarian Universalist practice. Pledging supports the Cedar Lane community, and pledges are the primary way we fund our ministries. Your pledge ensures our ministers are in the pulpit and by the hospital bed; that our music program thrives and inspires; keeps the lights on and the bathrooms clean; allows Cedar Lane to offer cutting-edge family ministry programs; and supports a broad range of social justice initiatives.
Together, we each bear a responsibility to ensure that Cedar Lane remains vital and strong. Did you know that of our $1.4 million budget, 65% of it is supported by pledges? Without you and your support, this congregation would not be the same.
This year, our goal is to raise $900,000 from the annual pledge drive. We’re also introducing auto-renew – the ability to tell us how much you want to pledge for future years. It helps both you and the church plan, and reduces the time and effort needed for the annual fund drive.
