Congregational Finance & Fundraising

Money—acquiring it, managing it, protecting it, and using it in service of your mission: all of these are vital to the work of your congregation. Whatever your leadership or staff role, if it has anything to do with money, we hope you’ll find useful resources below.

If your congregation has paid staff, in addition to the Staff Benefits & Compensation section linked below, you'll also want to check out the Congregations as Employers section for information on staffing practices, policies, and development.

Information about UUA Finances can be found in the About the UUA section.
