BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Support BuxMont

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.

2018 (FY2019) Stewardship Campaign Brochure

Stewardship is the process of asking each other to commit to funding BuxMont’s mission and vision by way of the budget. For this year’s campaign, watch for information each Sunday beginning January 14th, 2018. We will share with you information about what’s going on at BuxMont, what our pledges look like now, what we need going forward, how to calculate your pledge. Yes, we have to keep the lights on and pay for staff. But, are we supporting the Fellowship in such a way that we are able to live our values through BuxMont? Does your pledge reflect your values? Stay tuned for more details. We will ask you to submit your pledge after an intergenerational brunch on Celebration Sunday, which is February 11, 2018. Please plan to stay after the service for some food, fun and entertainment.

The new fiscal year begins July 1, 2018 and will run till June 30, 2019. We are hoping for 100% participation from members and friends this year. 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).
