How Much Should I Give?

Adapted from the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence

Giving to our religious home should feel good! It provides everyone another way to be intentional about what UCWC means in our lives.

We welcome financial commitments in all amounts. How much you give is up to you, and depends on your circumstances. In the spirit of joyful giving, here is a color-coded guide.

RED

RED households include at least one member with a well-paying job, or a good pension or income-producing assets. Red contributors have discretionary income and could travel abroad. A red pledge is $350 to $700/month or more.

MAGENTA

MAGENTA households have a reasonably high income but may have kids in college or other obligations. Magenta’s pledge is $150 to $400/month.

PURPLE

PURPLE households may be retired and/or living on a fixed income, or income that is up one year and down the next. A purple pledge is $50 to $200/month.

BLUE

BLUE does not have a lot of money to spare. Blue may be a single parent family, or unemployed, or living on Social Security, or raising a big family. Most blue individuals pledge an average of $20 to $75/month.

 

We are grateful for every commitment, and every gift
