Catch the Rising Tide - 2021

Members and friends in the AUUF community embrace a commitment
to volunteering their time and talents, contributing gifts, and pledging their
support. Pledges from AUUF members and friends make up around 80% of
the fellowship's budget to support daily operations, including basic facility
upkeep, utilities, staff, program supplies and equipment, and Payment in Lieu
of Taxes (PILOT).

The 2019 pledge drive included a fun evening with a Harry Potter
theme: Sparking Magic Together.  The 2020 pledge campaign -- Be Our
Champion -- was inspired by the Olympic Games (and, perhaps, some Freddy
Mercury!). Now with vaccines coming on and new national leadership in place,
we invite you to grab your board and paddle with us as we head out to

How much should you pledge?

AUUF's fiscal year is July 1 - June 30. To prepare a fiscally responsible budget, the annual stewardship drive is conducted in February and March, when members and friends are asked to confirm their pledge amount for the coming year, using this form (Must be downloaded to become a fillable PDF or MS Word file):

How much should you pledge?  

Pledging is a function of commitment and resources.  Commitment relates to the role AUUF plays in a person's spiritual and intellectual life, and the importance a person assigns to AUUF programs and services.  Pledging levels are also based on a person's circumstances and financial resources.  The Suggested Fair Share Contribution Guide outlines several levels of commitment and associated giving as a percentage of adjusted income.

While we do ask friends and members to give what they can, AUUF welcomes everyone regardless of contribution.  


Note: If you contribute your pledge payment by placing it in the offering basket, please be sure to mark the memo line on the check as "PLEDGE"  or put money in a sealed envelope clearly marked as PLEDGE. Otherwise, it is considered a donation to the Half Portion for Social Justice.
