First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia ~ Welcome home!

Ways to Give and Pledge

There are several ways you can give to the church thanks to Breeze, our new online database system!
     You can donate online for both a one-time gift and recurring automatic payments on Vanco and Breeze.
     You can donate by text through Breeze. The first donation by text takes a few minutes, but is fairly easy.

  • Text the amount you'd like to give at (215) 709-5095. 
  • If you have donated by text before, you'll receive a text in response confirming that your gift has been received successfully and you're done.
  • If it's your first time donating by text, you'll be sent a message that says, "It looks like you are a new giver; to begin: (link provided)." It will be a link to the church's online giving page. Clicking on the link you will be asked to supply their payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with you phone number so that, in the future, all you will need to do is text in the amount. You will not need to re-enter their payment information.
  • If you didn't specify a fund by using one of the keywords ( "offering", "pledge", "building", "general", or "pastoral") donations will automatically be counted as "offering". You can only give to one fund at a time.

     You can also still mail checks to the church office. 
      Feel free to reach out to Hye Sung Gehring, the Administrative Assistant, with any questions at

Pledging at First Unitarian Church

In the 4 years we have been together, we have deepened our commitments to
building justice in the world, offered meaningful care for each other when in need,
created spirit-filled worship, and increased the diversity of our 
as we have grown by over 60%. 
This coming year, we are investing in a new

staff model that will empower us to truly live out our mission of awakening love and
justice in our lives and the world. Our mission becomes alive when we give
ourselves to it, but when we come together it is so much greater than the sum of our
individual commitments. With your support, we can make it happen!
—Rev. Abbey Tennis

Why pledge? Pledging allows us to plan for a year of everything that we’ve come to love and expect about our church: our staff, our worship, our social justice programs, and so much more. All we ask is that you let us know how much you plan to give between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021.

Of course, if your circumstances change, you can change your pledge at any time during the year. Commit to an annual total that is meaningful for you. Consider that this church spends about $1,600 per person on its ministries and programs. If the right amount for you is more or less than that, find your target on the guide below.

Fulfill your pledge with checks, cash or automatic online payments before June 30, 2021. Beginning in July 2019, you will receive quarterly statements showing your pledge progress.

Questions? Contact Rev. Abbey, Business Administrator Norman Fouhy, and the Stewardship Team at or call the church office at 215 563 3980.
