BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship could not exist without the generous support of its members and friends. Your gifts of time and money change lives, inside and outside the Fellowship. Your support provides a haven for free thought and spiritual exploration in Bucks and Montgomery counties. Your support keeps the lights on and the creativity flowing in our beautiful Fellowship building. Your support gives BuxMont a voice in the community, standing for justice and for love. And your support allows generation after generation of BuxMont children to grow up exploring and discovering their own beliefs.
Yearly pledges from members and friends allow us to budget for the Fellowship’s many recurring expenses–including staff, national and district dues, mortgage, utilities, building maintenance, office expenses, and program support.
The new fiscal year begins July 1, 2017 and will run till June 30, 2018. It is very helpful to have pledges in February to allow time for budgeting. You do not need to be a member to pledge. Anyone who believes in our mission is encouraged to help BuxMont grow and flourish. (If you would prefer, you can make a one-time donation here).
If you are pledging for the first time and have any questions, please email: email@example.com
