Has this happened to you? You’re sitting in the sanctuary when the Split the Plate partner organization is introduced. You really want to make a donation, but you don’t have cash with you or a checkbook! So the gift is postponed… and perhaps even forgotten.

Imagine if you could send a donation with a simple click or two on your smartphone! That’s the power of Online Giving and Text-to-Give, and they are coming SOON to UUCW.

According to the experts, nearly 80 percent of Americans carry less than $50 cash with them. And nine percent carry no cash at all. And most Americans don’t carry checkbooks, either. Many of us pay our bills online, and we’d love to be able to make financial gifts to UUCW the same way.

Your Stewardship Committee has been listening to your needs, and learning how we can meet them! Watch for Tutorials on Text-to-Give and Online Giving at the Stewardship Committee table in the Community Room on Sundays in December. (Information will be provided in the Weekly E-News, too). You’ll love these easy, secure ways to make UUCW pledge payments, give to Split the Plate, and to respond to other giving opportunities.
