BCD Congregation Contribution &
Annual Program Fund
Fiscal Year 2013 Rate: $19.00 per certified member
The largest single revenue source for the District is the Congregation Contributions – commonly called “Fair Share” or “dues.” The contribution rate is a per member contribution, except for very large churches that may pay a percent of budget.
The BCD Board of Directors sets the per member rate for each year when the District budget is developed. Approval of the District budget at the Annual Meeting by the congregational delegates affirms the rate used to fund BCD expenses.
A congregation’s total BCD Congregation Contribution is calculated as the per member rate times the number of individual members (not pledge units) the congregation has certified to the Unitarian Universalist Association by February 1 proceeding the start of the Ballou Channing District fiscal year (e.g. the membership number certified to the UUA on February 1, before the beginning of the fiscal year on July 1).
BCD Congregation Fair Share Contributions are sent to: BCD Office, 325 West Elm Street, Brockton, MA 02301.
UUA Annual Program Fund (APF) Rates
Fiscal Year 2013 Rate: $56.00 per certified member
The UUA Annual Program Fund is the contribution member congregations are requested to make each year to the Association to support its activities and programs. A congregation’s total APF contribution is calculated as the per member dollar amount times the number of individuals members (not pledge units) the congregation has certified to the Unitarian Universalist Association by February 1 preceding the start of the UUA’s fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).
A portion of the APF contributions made by BCD congregations is returned annually to the District as a grant from the UUA. The grant amount is based on the total amount paid by BCD congregations to the UUA and the total number of congregations that make full payment
APF payments are sent to: UUA, 25 Beacon Street, Boston, MA 02108.
