We conduct the annual Stewardship Drive, or Pledge Drive, during late winter and early spring. This is when we engage in vital discussions about what we want All Souls to be… and what we can do to make that happen.
The Board of Trustees uses the results of the Budget Drive in developing the operating budget for the subsequent church year, and the final version of that budget is approved by the congregation at the Annual Meeting in late spring.
Resources for Pledging
A pledge is a commitment to financially support our church budget during the coming year. We offer online resources to help our members and friends think carefully about pledging and then make a pledge. Use the links below to access these resources:
- Pledge Drive Presentation – the what and why of our current drive (self-running PowerPoint slide show … clicking the link downloads the file)*
- Pledge Drive Presentation (PDF) – the same slide show as above, but viewable by a PDF reader** (not self-running and without the background music; will take longer to display)
- UUA Fair Share Giving Guide – the UUA’s suggested guide for giving (in PDF format)**
- Online Pledge Card – a safe way to fill out and submit your pledge online
If you received a pledge card in person or by mail, and you have already filled it out and turned it in, you do not have to do anything with the Online Pledge Card; it is only an alternative to the hard-copy pledge card.
If you have questions or concerns about pledging, Larry Norfleet – our Board Past President and co-chair of the 2017-18 Pledge Team – is available for visiting steward conversations by phone, email or person to person. Please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 719-332-5400 (cell).
*If you don’t have PowerPoint, you can get a PDF version from the church office.
