BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Split Plate Program

The split plate program was initiated at BuxMont UU Fellowship in October 2004. Fifty percent of the cash offerings received during Sunday services goes to help organizations in BuxMont’s community that serve those in need. Since this program began, we have donated more than $100,000.

If you have a suggestion for a Split Plate recipient, please e-mail the name of the organization to peaceandjustice@buxmontuu.org. The organization needs to have a 501(c)3 status and be located in Philadelphia, Bucks County, or Montgomery County. Thank you!

This Month’s Recipient

The Peace & Justice Split Plate recipient for December 2018 is:

Monroe Foundation for Youth
Here at Monroe Foundation for Youth, we’re 100% dedicated to helping families obtain services for at-risk youth and youth on the autism spectrum. We can make the challenge bearable for you by offering a diverse range of free services. In this case, you no longer have to worry about any costs. All of our learning programs were developed from years of constant study and research. We don’t just build a program and introduce it to children . Rather, we study all aspects necessary so that we can provide the best guidance that your child needs.

Founded in 2009, Monroe Foundation for Youth is always willing to help families in any way they can. Since Monroe Foundation understands the challenges that many children face, it was able to create different solutions that can improve a child’s personal and psychosocial growth. Monroe Foundation can help your child in many possible ways. Through routine interventions, the foundation can come up with the proper learning framework which incorporates all helpful concepts and parameters. Monroe Foundation for Youth also uses a systematized behavior modification plan to further help children. This plan is not forceful. Rather, it is flexible and full of wonderful activities to keep children organized. Monroe Foundation for Youth’s behavior support service is one of the best at-risk youth and autism methodologies that you’ll see in the industry today.


How It Works

The Board of Trustees, the Finance Committee, and the Peace and Justice Committee would like to clarify the way “basket” donations are split with the charity of the month, to assure that your contribution is credited where you intend.

  1. All non-pledge cash donations will be divided equally between BuxMont and the charity.
  2. All checks to BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BMUUF), and not otherwise designated on the memo line, will be credited to the donor’s pledge for BuxMont’s operating budget.
  3. All checks to BMUUF that you wish to share with the split plate will be divided according to your designation on the memo line. Example: “50/50,” “$40 BuxMont / $10 charity,” or “All charity,” etc.

If you itemize deductions on your income tax return, it is to your advantage to make any donations to the charity by check rather than cash. We can then substantiate your donation by including it on your giving statement.

We continue to appreciate your generosity to both the Fellowship and the “split plate” recipients.
