UUCNH is embarking on a Capital Campaign for the first time in 16 years. Over several months the Capital Campaign Team (CCT) will be collecting YOUR ideas and feedback. The CCT created 3 preliminary options; a basic plan of the lowest cost, an enhanced plan of mid-range cost, and a premier plan with a higher cost, but also the most impact. The details of these plans were presented at the mid-year congregational meeting that was held on January 23, 2022. The slide show presentation with the current 3 plans can be found on the UUCNH website.
We’ll have Capital Campaign Info and Input Sessions thru early March. We’ll match your input into the further development of the 3 options mentioned above; tailoring your most important needs and wants into the base plan as best we can. We’ll add goals and wish list items to the other options too, as each option grows in complexity and price. Hopefully, we can have a non-binding vote, or poll, on which option to pursue in Mid-March for a feasibility study to be performed by our UUA consultant Barry Finkelstein.
With Barry’s findings and the UUCNH community’s continued input, the plan is to have an official vote to proceed with the Capital Campaign at the annual congregational meeting in May. The Capital Campaign would start in earnest in September of this year.
The campaign is being driven by the needs of our beautiful facility: the barn’s roof must be replaced, and our parking lot is in need of attention. But this Capital Campaign will encompass much more than simply our community’s utilitarian needs; we need it to pave the path forward to our shared vision.
Please join Capital Campaign Team members for a discussion about YOUR dreams and visions for UUCNH’s future. This is a chance for every one of our members and friends to provide input on where the money will be spent; the repairs, programs, materials and actions that will “give power to all we stand for as a community of faith.”
