Your gifts make it possible to have an active Unitarian Universalist community here in Oneonta, NY. Every gift whether small or large is important to us as we pay our hired minister and staff, maintain two buildings, produce programs, and reach out to the wider community in our effort to support the Unitarian Universalist principles here in the Oneonta area.
There are a number of different ways to financially support the Unitarian Universalist Society of Oneonta:
Pledge an amount for the entire fiscal year (July to June). The annual spring stewardship drive collects pledges from members and friends so that the congregation can plan for the entire year. New and additional pledges are welcome at any time. Download a pledge form to mail to us or submit it online, both are available here.
Set up a secure online profile and account. You may set up recurring, automatic payments to the UUSO or give a one-time gift from your debit/credit card or your checking account.
With the Vanco Mobile App, you can send one-time pledge payments or Share Our Plate donations, or you can set recurring gifts. Click here for easy instruction.
Send a one-time donation or fulfill your annual pledge, payable to “UUSO” to the following address. If you are fulfilling a pledge or other designated gift, please add this information to the memo line.
16 Ford Avenue
Oneonta, NY 13820
Place cash or a check in the Offering Plate at Sunday service. Please write “pledge” on the memo line for pledge payments. To make a pledge payment in cash please use one of the Pledge Payment envelopes available at the Welcome Table and place it in the collection plate.
Half of the plate income, not designated as a pledge fulfillment, will go to the UUSO and half will go to a different designated charity each month in keeping with our SHARE OUR PLATE program.
About 10% of our annual budget is raised by fundraisers throughout the year.
Our UUSO endowment was created to fund both activities in the Society which are not normally part of the operating budget and in the community that are consistent with the principles of Unitarian Universalism.
