Funding Our Ministries
"We should demand a faith that asks something of us, not settle for one that requires very little."
~ Michael Durall
The ministry of Main Line Unitarian Church is as strong as the support given by our members and friends. In addition to asking for donations of time and talents, we ask for your generous financial support.

The Annual Fund Drive
One responsibility of membership is making a pledge during our annual fund drive and fulfilling that pledge over the course of the following year. All money pledged during the annual fund drive is devoted to the church's annual operating budget. There is no minimum required pledge, we ask only that you make your most generous gift in support of the day-to-day operation of your church. We conduct a campaign each spring in support of the budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, but you can make a pledge at any time.
Many participants in the life of the church who are not yet members also make pledges during the annual fund drive as an expression of their appreciation for the ministry that MLUC provides. We welcome and are grateful for that support.
Most members pay by check, but we also accept automatic bank drafts and credit cards. You can manage your payments using either of these methods by going to our secure server. If you prefer to have church staff set up your payments for you, please download, print, and fill out this authorization form and return it to the church office. Remember to include a voided check if you are setting up an automatic draft directly from your account.
Half of the offering received at each of our Sunday services directly supports Main Line Unitarian Church; the other half supports organizations that share our values.
In November, our annual Auction raises money for the church in a fun-filled setting. Vacation getaways, gourmet meals, business services, and artistic talents are just a few of the items up for bid, and often sell at bargain prices!
