Make a Donation

You give to UU Santa Monica because there are things we can do together that you cannot do alone.

When you support UUSM, you bring together people from across the Westside for inspired Sunday worship. You build a beloved community of kinship and mutual support. You create a nurturing environment that offers a counterpoint to consumer society. You nourish our homeless and hungry neighbors. And you effect change in our larger community.

100% Self-Supporting

As a 100% self-supporting faith community, UU Santa Monica creates the abundance we experience.

Together we co-create beautiful worship, religious programs for youth, diverse study and affinity groups, and an emerging sense of our power to build the Beloved Community, where everyone is cared for, absent of poverty, hunger, and hate.

Our Faith in Action initiatives focus on climate and economic justice, LGBTQIA+ rights, hunger, and democracy.

The absolute best way to support the life and the values of our Unitarian Universalist liberal faith community is with a pledge of financial support. Your pledge is a promise that represents the value you place on our beloved shared spiritual home and the good we do in the world. Help build the beloved community.

Thinking of the future?

We are excited to speak with members contemplating long-term gifts to support the mission and ministry of the church.  A trust, bequest, or beneficiary designation costs nothing now and ensures a lasting legacy in the work of the church and our congregational life. Contact the Stewardship team to start the conversation.

Other Ways to Give

Generous Congregation

Our practice at UUSM is to dedicate half of our non-pledge Sunday offerings to organizations doing work in the world that advances our Unitarian Universalist principles; the other 50% of the offering is used to support the life of our church. Together, we uplift the reach and impact of vital organizations doing work we could not do on our own.
