Email Receipts for Your Contributions

We continue the transition to PushPay. Starting on Monday, April 27th, we will be entering all charitable contributions through PushPay, including all checks received. This means you will receive an email receipt for all contributions, not just the ones you do yourself or recurring transactions we setup on your behalf. You will also know immediately when we’ve processed your check or cash (in an envelope with your name on it) donation. We are working on getting everyone who still has transactions in VANCO moved over. Once that is accomplished we will be deactivating our account with VANCO.
We are also accepting credit cards. This was initially only intended to be part of the initial trial, but has proven to be a quite popular option so we’re leaving it active. I would simply encourage all to take advantage of the option to cover the processing fees as part of your donation. There’s a box you can check to do so.
A reminder that you can access the Giving page from your phone by texting UCDSM to 77977. When you send ‘UCDSM’ to 77977 you will receive a one-time reply containing a link to give to the mobile version of our online giving page. (1msg/request) Please be aware that Msg & Data rates may apply.

Finally, a custom First Unitarian app is on its way and is expected to debut next month. Keep an eye on the Intercom for more information about this great new way to stay connected!
