Generously Investing for Tomorrow (GIFT)

GIFT Pledge Forms were sent in May 2013.

GIFT is the new unified funding program for the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the Southern Region.

GIFT has been developed over several years in collaboration with District elected leaders and staff, Regional Staff, and our Association as part of an effort to identify viable and sustainable alternatives to the existing Annual Program Fund and district funding structures.

GIFT changes the way we fund our district, regional, and national programs in two important ways:

  1. Congregations in the Southern Region will be asked to make one pledge, to both the UUA and Region (formerly Districts).
  2. Congregational contributions will be requested based on a fixed percentage (7%) of certified expenditures, rather than on membership totals.

For Southern Region congregations, the GIFT Program will begin in conjunction with the upcoming 2014 Fiscal year (July 1,2013-June 30, 2014).

Please join with us on this bold experiment! Your participation and feedback (email are essential to the success of this pilot! We are here to help answer any questions you may have!

Your continued generosity has allowed us to do so much together!
