Generosity Committee

Mission Statement

To guide the congregation along a path of generosity, in which individuals understand how their financial contributions, to the best of their ability, reflect their commitment to support the mission of SUUF in making a difference in our community and in our world.


  • With input from the board, establish a pledge goal to meet budgetary needs to further the Summit mission
  • Design a campaign to raise funds toward that goal
  • Execute the campaign to seek to meet the goal
  • Recognize and include both fundraising and friend-raising components that secure funds and build community
  • Educate congregation of financial needs and how their contributions can support the mission
  • Coordinate annual pledge drive with other fundraising campaigns throughout the year, e.g., planned giving, auction, special projects


  • Generate pledge drive publicity materials, e.g., letters, brochures, charts, newsletter articles
  • Recruit and train volunteer stewards and team captains to carry message
  • Solicit contributions from membership
