Thank you for supporting the work of the Fellowship!


Stewardship

Stewardship—caretaking of each other, our church abode, our community and our world—is made possible by the covenantal gifting of our time, talent and treasures. It is how, in planned intentional ways, we sustain this religious community and its work on a day to day basis. Acts of stewardship include:

  • Pledging our financial support for the church’s operating budget, customarily done during our Annual Canvass in the spring.
  • Paying our pledges during the church year
  • Doing organized volunteer work as a leader or member of a church team.
     


eGiving

Pledging – Give-a-Gift and Creating a Legacy – Endowment Fund provide details about each Giving opportunity, with all gifts being tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
In addition to your gifts of support via cash or check (payable to UUFP; mailed to 13136 Warwick Blvd., Newport News, VA 23602), the following four Vanco eGiving options are available for your convenience. You may donate as a "guest" or register an account to manage your donations (with one-time and recurring donations available).

1. Online Giving Page

Many donors find the secure online Giving page the easier, more familiar way to complete their charitable contributions.


2. GivePlus Online

Donations through ACH transactions (checking and savings account drafts) carry significantly lower fees for the UUFP than credit or debit card transactions. GivePlus Online (#2) and GivePlus Mobile (#3) provide a check-box near the end of each transaction that invites you to help offset a portion of the fees for these payment conveniences. Contributing this optional “extra” helps maximize the reach of your gifts! Please know that our Fellowship appreciates all gifts it receives via the donation process of your choice.
