At UUCMC, we have various fundraisers throughout the year. In 2020, the usual way of doing things has been upended. Check out our Giving Guide for a quick explanation of ways to support our congregation through this unusual year. Below, you’ll find some of our successful fundraisers.
Our largest and most successful is our Annual Auction, held every spring 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 email@example.com.
When you shop on Amazon, they donate a percentage of your purchase to UUCMC through Amazon Smile! Click smile.amazon.com/ch/21-0742906 to be taken to our page, and start buying and raising money for UUCMC at the same time! (You can also click the “a” with a smile at the top of our website.)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
