Dear NUUC Friend ,
By now you might have heard the exciting news that after years of diligent effort, we are now positioned to complete the final phase of our building expansion capital campaign, based on the design plan and assumptions outlined in the material below.
On April 10, our congregation voted to approve this project based on a “close the gap” goal of $474K. That number includes a generous matching gift of $200K. We are very excited to be able announce now that another generous donor has stepped forward with a $100K gift in response to the matching gift. Now we only need $100K more to realize the full matching gift, and only $374K to achieve our ultimate goal. We are hoping you might be able to join with us to reach this goal in whatever way you can.
If you did not make a pledge in 2019, or if you were not yet a part of our community at the time of our initial campaign, we are hoping you might make a pledge now. We also want to offer our most sincere gratitude to those of you who have already pledged and already made gifts towards our campaign. We are hopeful that you might make an additional pledge at this time to help us with this final phase of our campaign.
Please participate even if you can only offer a small gift—broad participation helps us know that we are on track with our aspirations for our congregation’s future and shows our matching gift donor our solidarity with their commitment. For this reason, I am personally pledging an amount that represents 20% of my annual compensation.

We can do this together!
