Stewardship teams are encouraged to come explore the spirituality of stewardship, trust as the foundation of a generous culture, and how we can empower the alignment of our resources and our highest values. We will have ample time for sharing of congregational best practices.

- "Unconscious Bias: A Roadblock to Fundraising Success"
Saturday, June 22 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Preferences can become “biases,” a tendency to make decisions based on what we believe will happen. These affect our fundraising success. Participants come away with an increased capacity to recognize how unconscious bias works in their individual and congregational lives as they gain tools to shift their fundraising practices.
Led by Woullard Lett, Acting Lead, New England Region, UUA; Elizabeth Ann Terry, Congregational Giving Specialist, UUA; and Halcyon Westall, Project Manager, Faithify, UUA. Visit Facebook for information, updates.
