Finance Facts from the Finance Committee – March, 2018

• We are not a gym, social club, or a governmental body. We do not levy fees, dues, or taxes. We are a loving community, and if you need love or have some to share, you belong with us.

• The average cost per month per pledger for the expenses of this church is about $165, but we do not expect that from everyone. What might be impossible for one person might be too easy for the person sitting next to them.

• Financial support for our community comes primarily from pledged gifts, good for one year at a time. “Love is our religion,” and so is generosity.

• You can make one time donations or set up automatic pledge payments at www.uuventura.org, by clicking on “Give” on the right side of the masthead area, then, click on the picture of the mouse and following the instructions; or by contacting contact David Smith at 805/216-9331 or davidpaseo@verizon.net.
