Three important messages from the Pledge Secretary:

1. While we are not having services in person, remember to keep making your contributions in support of the missions of UUCB. Checks may be sent via US Mail to UUCB, P.O. Box 1496, Binghamton, NY 13902 or you may contribute using the “Donate” feature at the top of the UUCB Home page via PayPal.

2. Please do not make two contributions on one check or PayPal donation. Contributing to two different things? Write two checks. Make two PayPal donations.

This makes your intentions easier to follow for the Collector.

3. The pandemic has created a situation such that the Pledge Secretary cannot generate the emails for the individualized third Quarter Annual Fund Pledge Status Reports.

Therefore, I am making each of you who have pledged to the Annual Fund an Honorary Pledge Secretary with the power and duty to create Your Third Quarter Pledge Status Report.

First, every Member, Friend, and Visitor who filled out the information card is in the UUCB database.

Second, the instructions below can be used at any time to review your information in the UUCB database.
