COVID-19 Emergency Appeal
Dear UUFSD Member and Friends,
We are living in extraordinary times. Although we are all living with less physical contact, we need each other more than ever. This includes our beloved Fellowship as well as the individual members of our community.
Today we must make a special appeal to all our members and friends. Social distancing requires that we live-stream Sunday services (so no weekly collections) and cancel our traditional spring auction (reasons given here). Thus, two important income streams are lost to us resulting in a $20,000 shortfall this year.
Understanding that strengthening our covenant, our staff, and our campus is ultimately strengthening each of us, here is where our funds are spent:
- Personnel 73%
- Operations 24%
- Reserves 3%
We therefore appeal to everyone to make a one time donation to tide us over. Please consider giving the equivalent of one month’s pledge – or more if you can afford it – to our General Fund. Five percent of everything you give will be directed to the Minister’s Discretionary Fund for him to help members who are in dire need.
Send your check to UUFSD, P.O. Box 201, Solana Beach, CA 92075. Please put “Covid-19 GF” in the memo line.
Or you can go to uufsd.org and, in the top right hand corner, click on GIVE NOW. On that page, type in your donation under Give Now and click Continue. On the second page under Donation Information put “Covid-19 GF” in the Instructions box.
Thank you so much for continued support of our Fellowship and beloved community.
Yours in peace,
Alana Schuller, UUFSD Board of Directors President
Rich Macdonald, Stewardship Steering Committee Chair
Sarah Miller, UUFSD Treasurer
