(previously Canvass Clean Up Webinar) The hardest part of the canvass is often the last ¼ of the pledges. Join other Unitarian Universalists from around the country attempting to finish the pledge drive with positive results. We will offer two webinar sessions where participants will have the opportunity to share ideas, commiserate, and celebrate as we make our way towards the finish line. Stewardship Teams strongly encouraged to attend.

We encourage team registration for up to three people. There is a sliding scale team fee of $15 - $30 for this event. Reverend Sharon Dittmar, Congregational Life Consultant in the MidAmerica Region will facilitate and offer pledge drive tips with assistance from Art Nava from the New England Region and Reverend Alia Shinbrough from the Central East Region.


Teams of up to three are encouraged to register on one form as the cost is per team (though individuals can also register).

WHEN: Thursday, March 14, 2024 & Thursday, April 25, 2024. Registration end on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.

WHERE: Online!

Registration fee: Registration fees are on a sliding scale, based on your assessment of your ability to pay. Those who pay at the highest level are making a donation to help those in financial need for this event. Please remember that for a sliding scale to work, we need the same number of people with means to generously pay more to balance the needs of those who can afford less.
