How much should I pledge?
If you’re unsure about how much to pledge, consider using the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Fair Share Guide to Giving. This guide can provide a range of practical giving levels for making your pledge. It also recognizes that people have varying capacities to give, based on their resources and other financial responsibilities.
How do I pay my pledge?
Your pledge is for the full church year (July to June ) and can be paid weekly, monthly, annually or at any interval you choose. You can fulfill your pledge by:
CHECK – place your check (payable to First Parish Church) in the plate during a church service OR mail to the church – Attn: Treasurer, P.O. Box 1764, Duxbury, MA 02331. A note in the memo line stating “pledge” is helpful!
AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS – A great way to pay toward your commitment is by setting up automatic payment through your own bank account (this costs the church little and provides steady income year-round). You can do that yourself through your bank or we can set up automatic withdrawals for you. Automatic credit card withdrawals can also be arranged.
CASH – To have cash contributions applied toward your pledge, please place the cash in an envelope and mark with your name. Place the envelope in the plate or give to Lenore at the church office.
