Our pledge campaign begins on with our first Neighborhood Circle Cottage Meeting.  We are holding these more social, fun and interactive gatherings instead of our early September luncheon after service.  The revised schedule is listed below.

           September 22 at 6:00 pm – Barb Banus

           September 25 at 6:30 pm – Jennifer Rhodes

           September 28 at 7:00 pm – Caren Ross

           September 29 at 5:00 pm – Mary Mack

           October 3 at 6:00 pm – Char Lane

We hope you will be able to attend one of these to join in food, fellowship, and information-sharing.  Please let the host know if you plan to attend.

You will receive your pledge packet at the Cottage Meeting.  This packet contains important and helpful information.  If you are ready, you may complete your form and turn it in that evening.  If you are not, that is fine.  Please just submit the pledge form by our deadline of October 21.

Please help UUFB plan for a 2020 that is full of love, community and mission activities.  Your pledges enable this fellowship to be sustained and to thrive.  In order to accomplish this, we are requesting a 12% increase over last year’s pledges.  This was calculated using data such as current and projected expenses, budget, income estimates, etc.  We hope you will rise to the occasion and support this wonderful fellowship.

Please email stewardship@uubeaufort.org or speak with one of the Stewardship Committee members (wearing the heart logo buttons on Sundays in September) if you have any stewardship questions.

 

Some helpful information if you are over 70 ½ years old:

  1. If you are over 70 ½ and have a 401(k) plan or an IRA, you can have your plan

administrator distribute your required distribution directly to the Fellowship

(up to $100,000).  The benefits to this are:

  1. You do not have to pay income tax on the distribution.  However, you will not be able to take a charitable deduction.
  2. You will benefit the Fellowship.
  3. If you have appreciated stocks or bonds (not in retirement account) you can

give them in-kind to the Fellowship.

  1. Your charitable deduction is the fair market value of the stock or bond on the date of the gift.
  2. You do not have to pay capital gains tax.

 

Thanks for your Time – Talent – Treasure!

You are all greatly appreciated!
