Download the Annual Pledge Form.
Each spring, we receive pledges — promises to contribute a minimum amount of money to GMUUC — that enable us to realistically budget, plan, and support our mission for the coming year. All the money collected is used to support the congregation in meeting the annual budget. More specifically, pledges provides worship and music, faith development classes for children and adults, many social justice projects, pastoral care, community events and much more.
While pledging is not a requirement for Members and Friends of the church, we do believe that financial support is one of the responsibilities of membership and friendship. We strongly encourage Members and Friends to pledge consistent with their individual circumstances. In addition, a contribution of record is a requirement for voting membership.
GMUUC Legacy Program
GMUUC’s Chalice Keepers is a legacy giving program which allows contributors to ensure financial support for their most cherished values well into the future. Legacy gifts support long-term GMUUC programs and projects that typically cannot be sustained through annual giving. Near-term possibilities might be paying off a building loan, creating a memorial garden on our new property, or establishing a center devoted to the needs of LGBTQ+ youth.
Fourteen members have been recognized as “Chalice Keepers” by making bequests to GMUUC as part of their estate plans. Their names are listed in a plaque on the walls of our sanctuary. Would you like to be a Chalice Keeper? For more information, contact John Watkins.
More Ways To Give
Did you know that shopping at your favorite stores like Amazon, eBay, and Kroger can help benefit GMUUC?
Besides mailing a contribution or committing an Annual Pledge, there are many other ways to financially contribute to GMUUC — just by shopping online!
Shop Via Our Amazon Affiliate Link
Do you shop on Amazon.com? If so, you can now help raise funds for GMUUC through our Amazon referral program. We join many other UU churches who are already participating in this program. All you have to do is click this link to Amazon.com. Once you click the link, you will be able to shop just as if you’d entered Amazon.com directly. GMUUC will get 4-15% of what you spend, depending on the category of merchandise and how many items we collectively purchase during the month.
Amazon will automatically calculate how much money to send to GMUUC. If you have privacy concerns, rest assured that GMUUC won’t get any information about how much you spent or what you specifically purchased — or whether you shopped at all. Please note that if you leave Amazon and then re-enter it, you need to re-enter from the link above or the referral link will reset. Also, if you don’t complete your purchases within 24 hours, the referral link will reset.
Shop Via Amazon Smile
You shop. Amazon gives. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know: same products, same prices, same service. Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com — select “Georgia Mountains Unitarian Universalist Church, Inc.” as your charitable organization. Use smile.amazon.com every time you shop at Amazon to contribute to GMUUC with every purchase you make!
