While we know how immensely vital ministries like this one are—both to the future of our Unitarian Universalist faith and to our world—the infrastructure to support them does not yet exist. The only way that Sacred Fire UU is able to do its work is through the generous support of individuals like you.
Therefore, we are on a campaign for 100 more Catalyzers—sustaining supporters—by the end of the UUA General Assembly this June 22-26.
What's a Catalyzer?
Catalyzers make our work possible by pledging $10, $25, $50, or $100 per month to the ministry. We have only one rule: Catalyzers must have pledged in their home congregations first! The work of Sacred Fire UU is designed to be complementary to the work of our existing congregations and institutions.
Some Catalyzers choose to give their support in a lump sum of $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000 (essentially the cost of bringing a covenanted community to self-sufficiency). No matter the amount, all Catalyzers are in an ongoing relationship of gratitude and receive updates on the progress of the ministry and opportunities to connect with our work.
How do I become one?
First off, all new donations to Sacred Fire UU will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a grant from the Unitarian Universalist Funding Program and a generous donor. Your impact is immediately doubled!
To become one of the 100 new Catalyzers, you may send a check to: Sacred Fire Unitarian Universalist, 301 Davie Road, Carrboro, NC 27510 or give securely through this website.
What will a successful campaign allow us to do?!
The short answer: plant and grow six (6!) new covenanted communities across the country, this year.
We currently have a self-sufficient community in Carrboro NC and growing communities in Brooklyn NY, Seattle WA, Oakland CA, and Durham NC. We have received requests from folks in Dallas, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Vermont, Knoxville and elsewhere to help them to plant and grow covenanted communities of their own. If our campaign is successful, we will have the resources to be able to say “Yes!” to them, and be well on our way to national sustainability.
Please help us respond to this demand by directly supporting the starts of new communities. We can't do it without you, thank you! If you know of others out there that would be excited by this work, please refer them to us. Lastly, if you have more questions or would like to speak with Rev. Nato or another of our leaders, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
