While we have options to give via SquarePay and Venmo, we ask that you pledge using these other methods so that more of your gift can be received by UUCGT. These methods have service fees that come with using them.

The offering baskets that are passed in the Sanctuary during Sunday Services have two

sides to each basket.  One side is for donations to Those in Need in the Community and

the other side is donations to UUCGT.

 

The Community Needs Committee’s purpose is to distribute funds collected during Sunday morning services to non-profit agencies, religious organizations, charities and groups within Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie, Kalkaska, and Antrim counties which provide charitable services only.

Members and friends of the Congregation will complete the Donation Request form in full and submit it to the Office. (Link to form here.)
