YEAR END GIVING AT UR
We are deeply grateful for all of you who give your time and energy and finances to fuel our life together as a community. Your financial gifts help us to pursue who God is calling us to be and become, both inside and outside the walls of our building. Thanks to all of you who give to what God is doing in and through UR.
As with most non-profits, December is a critical month financially for us as it is the month we plan for the largest percentage of giving. Every year, we invite our community to make a special financial gift to help us meet our biggest monthly goal and to keep us in a healthy financial position. Our December giving goal is $92,500. Currently we find ourselves just ahead of our year to date giving goal.
Upper Room exists because of the generosity of our community members. If you are already a committed giver to Upper Room, we are inviting you to give an “over and above” gift this month. If you don’t normally give to UR, we’re asking that you give in this moment to support our community. Your year-end financial gifts to Upper Room will help us to stay on track with our budget so that our staff can continue to focus on leading our community now and into the future.
Our Christmas offering is Upper Room’s annual tradition to support our community’s missional movement into the world. All loose cash received on Christmas Eve and gifts indicated towards the Christmas Offering will go directly outside the walls of our community. We have a goal of raising $7,000, providing laptops access to each 5th grade student and providing necessary funding for the robotics club.
