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.

“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― Francis of Assisi

2019 (FY2020) Stewardship Campaign Brochure

In the coming year, we aim to amplify BuxMont UUF as a spiritual home that embraces the entire Fellowship and our larger community. In our first year with Rev. Kevin Jagoe, we are already exploring ways to deepen our shared ministries—through fellowship and music, religious education for all ages, our commitment to social justice, and support for one another. Together we make all of this possible, and more. Vital and thriving congregations practice shared ministry. Each UU congregation is solely responsible for funding its total operations. We recognize this responsibility when we join the Fellowship by pledging financial support each year. It’s a powerful form of ministry!

Now is the time to decide how you will support our Fellowship for the coming year. The budget for Fiscal Year 2020 relies on $265,000 from pledges. We will accomplish this with 100% participation by members and friends.

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).
