Pledging to Northwoods
Each year our Board of Trustees proposes an operating budget for Northwoods based on the pledges we’ve made to this community. And every pledge matters! The big ones and the small ones because taken together our pledges pay our staff, run the lights and A/C, buy teaching supplies for religious education—and keep the coffee pot full, among other things.
And our pledges allow us to reach out beyond our walls to make a difference in the larger community and the world.
If you are unfamiliar with Fair Share Giving or want to re-evaluate your financial commitment, we ask that you please take a few minutes to read the section about Fair Share Giving the UU way.
Thank you for opting-in to Northwoods with your pledge!

Donations by Text
We can now make donations to Northwoods by text. Simply send a text to 832-637-6562 (Northwoods’ text donation number) with the amount you want to give. The first time you text a donation, you will be asked to enter your information on Vanco’s secure site where it will be saved, so you won’t have to enter it again.
Donations default to the General Operating Fund, but if you want to give to a specific fund, for example Share the Plate, add the code after the amount. To see a list of codes for the funds available for text giving, send the message “funds” to the Northwoods’ text donation number above.
Currently the funds are:
STP for Share the Plate
Food for Food on the First donations
Sanctuary for donating to our Sanctuary Support Fund
Pledge for your pledge account
MDF for the Minister’s Discretionary Fund
If no fund is specified, the donation will go into the General Fund. Fund codes are not case sensitive, but you do have to watch out for auto-correct.
