UUFC Fiscal Insights – Fulfilling Your 2024-25 Pledge

First, our thanks to all who have committed to the ongoing success and growth of the UUFC through a pledge for its 2024-25 fiscal year. Together we are doing great things! It is not too late to make a pledge if you have not yet had the chance to do so. To make your pledge, visit the annual pledge drive page.

For those who have made a pledge, now is the time to ponder how you intend to fulfill your pledge. Some of you will have seen a version of this information via a direct email:

Pay By Check

Drop checks at church or mail to UUFC, 2945 NW Circle, Corvallis OR 97330. No need to read further.

Use Your Bank Bill Pay System

Be sure that the donation amount and beginning and end dates for these contributions are correct. Have checks mailed to UUFC, 2945 NW Circle Blvd, Corvallis OR 97330. No need to read further.

Pay Through an IRA

If you have an IRA and need to take a minimum required distribution, you can make such directly to the UUFC with tax advantage. Talk with your financial advisor about options.

Stock Donations

Some people make stock donations. If you need information about making stock donations, please ask Russ Karow.

Breeze Automatic Payment System

If you would like to pay using the Breeze automatic payment system and have not already set that up, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to Breeze, using the link in the “Members Area” at the bottom right of any page on the website.
  2. Click on Manage Recurring Giving button at mid-screen or in the left-hand column
  3. Use the “Stop this recurring gift” button to stop your 2023-24 pledge
  4. Add a new pledge
  5. Enter dollar amount and if possible, agree to cover the processing fee
  6. Select 2024-25 operation budget from drop down menu.
  7. Select frequency of the gift – one time, weekly, every two weeks, etc.
  8. You should see an option for using an existing account or you can add a new debit/credit or bank account Please note that some people have said they see a different screen setup when they go to Breeze. If you have issues with the system, let us know.

Additional Thoughts

If you are currently using the Breeze payment system but are comfortable using bill pay through your bank, please consider this option for the UUFC payment. It saves processing fees – neither you nor the UUFC have to pay these fees

If dealing with the breeze system seems overwhelming, please let us know and UUFC staff will deal with the system for you. We are happy to do so.

If you have any questions, send an email to the address below or call Russ Karow at 541-760-4770 (leave a message if I don’t answer) and we will find answers for you.

Thanks for your many contributions to the success of the UUFC. You are appreciated.

May your summer be amazing.
