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 to give an amount for the entire fiscal year (July to June). Our annual spring stewardship drive collects pledges from our members and friends so that we can plan for the entire year. New and additional pledges are welcome at any time. You can download a pledge form to mail to us or submit it online here.
Online Donation: Here you can set up a secure account to donate directly from a bank account or credit card. If you wish, you can set up recurring automatic payments to the UUSO.

Send a Check. Make your one time donation payable to “UUSO” and send it to:

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 will go to the UUSO and half will go to a different designated charity each month in keeping with our SHARE OUR PLATE program.
Society Fundraisers. About 10% of our annual budget is raised by fundraisers throughout the year.
Endowment – 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.
