We support the mission and ministry of our congregation through excellence and creativity in generating revenue.
Our Fundraising Policy assigns responsibility for reviewing and approving all fundraising activities to the Fundraising Committee except for the Annual Budget Drive which is under the aegis of Stewardship.
Fundraising activities include:
Now known as the Autumn Festival, this annual gala event is the social and fundraising highlight of the church year. Each year has a special theme and includes a silent and live bidding auction, entertainment and refreshments. Use the Autumn Festival link to find details, including the categories for bidding and how to donate an item(s) yourself. This event typically contributes well over $10,000 to the church budget.
Dining for Dollars (D4$) is a fundraiser adopted in 2006 (with thanks to the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica). Congregants offer one another opportunities to bid on (mostly) dining experiences and we fill our social calendars for the Summer and Fall. The silent bidding takes place over three Sundays in May; the effort usually brings in approximately $10,000 for the UUCV budget.
