Giving to Our Church


This Year's Gift Fund Drive Theme is "Growing the Flame."

The 2018 Annual Gifting Fund Drive starts soon and this time your Finance Committee wants to do something not achieved in years... to obtain pledges sufficient to actually cover the church’s expenses. That’s right…. Our church has been starting each fiscal year without knowing for sure that it could pay the bills. We have been scraping along with fundraisers.

So what does UUCLR want from you? No more than you can afford, of course! But if it’s possible for you, we hope you can step up your yearly gift to the next level.

The Finance Committee has calculated that if church members can raise their pledges just that bit, then we will be able to cover our operating expenses and the essential community programs—as well as provide raises to our excellent, hardworking staff.
Whatever pledge you are able to make, you can have joy in knowing that you’re supporting the sound operation of your church; that you’re directly helping to nourish homeless people, needy children, and the minds of prisoners; and that you are Growing the Flame of our mission.

We ask everyone to review their current pledge the Fair Share Guide. Then, fill out and sign the 2018-2019 Gift form with your pledge. We are Growing the Flame and there is no telling how far we will travel.

During the Annual Fund Drive, by marking your pledge as "Fair Share,"
you will receive a bonus of an invitation to a celebration at John and Valerie McNee's home.

Pledges of $5,000 or more will include the donor in the UUCLR Emerson Society

Support UUCLR when you shop on AmazonSmile

The Endowment Fund of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Little Rock  was established in 1982 with seed money from the estate of a friend of the church. Its purpose is to provide the church more long-term financial stability by offering members and friends a fund into which they can make testamentary and current gifts to help sustain UUCLR programs in perpetuity. Annual distributions from the Fund are made to the Church and the Board decides how they can be best utilized.
