Three Ways to Give

Making our world a more just and compassionate place is at the heart of our faith. Every Sunday, 50% of our ‘Sunday offering’ goes to support a local service organization. We’re currently supporting Open Heart Kitchen. Because we aren’t currently meeting in person, you may contribute online by choosing “Sunday Svc Collection-1/2 goes to Charity” or by sending a check to UUCiL with Sunday Service Collection on the memo line. 

Open Heart Kitchen serves prepared, nutritious meals free of charge to the hungry people of the Tri-Valley area.  They also serve lunches to seniors over the age of 60.  Following the Alameda County Public Health Department guidelines  all meals are now picked up at four different sites or delivered by volunteers.

Church Funds

When donating, you will have to choose what fund your money will go towards. Below are descriptions of our current funds.

Sunday Collection

Half of donations go to a local service organization. The other half go towards keeping the church running and supporting our community.

Minister’s Discretionary Fund

 Our minister has a fund to support congregants in need.


Annual Pledge

Part of church membership is pledging to donate to the church annually. Some members pledge $5, some pledge $5,000. The pledges are fulfilled through donations throughout the year.
