Stewardship runs the annual pledge drive in the spring, the annual Harvest Festival in October, and the Year-End Gift to BUF meeting and presentation in December. We coordinate with the BUF auction, which is BUF's major fund-raiser after the pledge drive. We are beta testers for the UUA's Wi$dom path program, and look forward to learning more about how we can build generous lives. Contact: Carl Nyblade
The Finance Committee advises the Treasurer and Board of Trustees in the adoption of Fellowship financial policies and procedures. During monthly meetings, this team evaluates income and expense trends and aid in the development of financial policies, procedures, and recommendations. They may also serve on audit and other special task force committees, including an annual budget committee. A liaison from the Board of Trustees attends the monthly Finance Committee meeting and reports back to the Board on a monthly basis.
Finance Committee members are appointed based on their interest in helping shepherd BUF's financial health. Background in accounting, finance, non-profit management or business is preferred. Those who wish to serve on this vital committee are encouraged to submit a statement of interest and background to the Finance Committee Chair. Interested congregants are welcome to attend Finance Committee meetings. Members of this committee are appointed by the Board of Trustees and typically serve one to three years. Contact: Dave Zeretzke
