Since 2014, over $1.6 MILLION has been raised for Unitarian Universalist ministries through our UU crowdfunding website, Faithify.org!
Faithify is free and available to all UU congregations, organizations, and individuals. Unlike many crowdfunding sites, we don’t take a percentage of what’s raised— more of the money you give through Faithify goes to the project.
To keep this going, we need your help. Your generosity helps Unitarian Universalism thrive, and by donating to Faithify Operations you’ll be funding our website costs. With your gifts, Faithify will continue to enable UU communities to fund their important projects.
What makes Faithify different?
Faithify.org is Unitarian Universalist, through and through. As a project of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), we are committed to interconnected, relational fundraising for UU projects. Faithify.org is one of the ways the UUA can support UU congregations, communities, and people as they live their values in the world.
FREE hosting of campaigns on our website.
FREE support for technical issues from a real human. (Hi there!)
FREE advice from our crowdfunding experts as you build your campaign page and promote your campaign.
FREE promotion of your campaign in Faithify newsletters, social media posts, and homepage, plus regional promotion of your campaign.
NEW this year:
- We removed the “All-or-Nothing” goal on all General Assembly travel and registration campaigns. Now you keep everything you raise for UUA GA!
- For congregations and UU organizations in good standing with the UUA, include CHECKS towards your Faithify campaign goal! Yes, that means your supporters can now choose to donate online or by check.
We are always listening to your feedback and adjusting Faithify to better serve. All the fabulous features above are free to Faithify users, but there are costs for maintaining and staffing the site. We ask that you consider how Faithify.org helps express your values, and make a donation to support our site today.
