Whether you serve on committees, work on special projects, pull weeds, serve food, show up for yellow T-shirt alerts, participate in small group ministries, teach young people, usher, bring cookies, or simply greet each other with a smile and a friendly word, you nurture and shape our vibrant community. Thank you!
Financial contributions are also an important part of your participation in our community. Your financial gifts sustain our Minister, program, administrative staff and infrastructure (building and grounds) that provide a home in which we can shape our vision and pursue our mission.
Online giving is a convenient way to donate during the livestream gathering. Pay your pledge, support the Permanent Endowment Fund, the Minister's Emergency Fund or let us choose where your gift is needed most. You can make a one-time gift or a recurring gift.
Thank you for your ongoing support.

Pledge to Support Our Community
Each Unitarian Universalist community is responsible for funding its own programs and day-to-day operations. While the national Unitarian Universalist Association and regional Pacific Western Region provide essential services and information, they don't provide operating funds to us; in fact, we provide funds each year to them. So, we rely on our members and friends to fund our operating budget by pledging each year, usually in March and April.
A pledge is your best estimate of what you will be able to contribute financially to UU Santa Fe during the coming year. Whatever the size of that pledge, you are valued here as a member of our cherished community. Give according to your blessings and circumstances.
The 2023-2024 Pledge Campaign officially closed on April 16, but you may make a pledge at any time during the year. This year's pledge goal was $325,000, an 8.3% increase over last year intended to cover inflationary costs and support our staff. If you haven't pledged before or are new to Santa Fe, please join these supporters by reviewing the pledge information at left and completing and submitting your 2023-2024 pledge form; the online pledge form at left makes it fast and easy or you can print the PDF version.

Endow | Once in a Lifetime Planned Giving
Since 1991, the generosity of members and friends has made possible the establishment of the UU Santa Fe Permanent Endowment Fund. This endowment provides revenue to support special needs, capital improvements, community initiatives and social outreach that are not supported by our annual operating funds.
UU Santa Fe retains professional fund management through the Unitarian Universalist Common Endowment Fund. The Fund is a diversified investment fund seeking current income and long-term investment returns through portfolio allocation and professional asset management consistent with socially responsible UU investing goals.
Legacy giving activities at UU Santa Fe are coordinated by the Permanent Endowment Committee (PEC) in consultation with the Board and the Finance Committee.
If you are considering a legacy gift to this special place and would like to talk to community leadership about your gift, please call our business office or fill out our contact form. If you have already decided to do so, it would be helpful to our Permanent Endowment Committee to know of your intentions; please complete this form.
