At UUCMC, we have various fundraisers throughout the year. In 2020, the usual way of doing things was upended; we rely more on texting and online giving now. But we still need to raise money for the congregation. Below, you’ll find some of our successful fundraisers.
Our largest and most successful is our Annual Auction, held every spring online and/or in our Community Room. We are able to have both a silent and live auction through the generosity of our community, within and beyond our walls. We serve food and drink and have free childcare, so it’s a great night out for the whole family!
We have fundraisers that happen whenever suits your schedule!
UUCMC participates in a gift card fundraiser, both through local supermarkets and with Great Lakes Scrip Center, who sell thousands of brands. UUCMC gets a percentage of every card, and you don’t pay more than face value. Look for the table after service every Sunday during Coffee Hour, or reach out to Sandy Blakelock, who coordinates the online purchases, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amazon has stopped their Amazon Smile program. Thank you for raising money for UUCMC while shopping over many years!
Our Music Committee often plumbs its impressive talent pool to offer the congregation a fundraising concert. We have enjoyed Broadway tunes and classical music.
New ideas for ways to help the congregation are brought to us, and we appreciate any way we can raise funds to support the good work of this congregation. If you have an idea, please contact our Fundraising Coordinator, John Hoffman, at email@example.com.
