Established in 1885

Neighborhood Church is a thriving beacon of liberal religion in the greater Pasadena community.  We are a self-sustaining community that gives back generously with our money, time, and talent in order to foster an ongoing, year-round culture of stewardship to support our mission. Neighborhood Church sustains its programs, ministries, and facilities through the regular and recurring financial contributions of our members and friends.  Your annual pledge is a commitment to the continued and future well-being of our congregation.

What Does Your Giving Support?

  • Worship & Music: Sunday Worship that reaches almost 500 people weekly and our prophetic, liberal voice in the world.

How Much Should I Give?

It costs approximately $150 per person, per month, to sustain Neighborhood each year. Members and pledging friends contribute at levels appropriate to their income and financial circumstances. Please see our giving guide to help determine the right pledge and payment options for you and your family. As you think about the spiritual home you’ve found here and the values we embody in our world, please give as generously as you can.

Legacy Society

The Neighborhood Legacy Society honors members who have made a commitment to build a long-term sustainable foundation that year after year supports our faith community and our UU ancestors’ 200-year progressive mission.  Legacy Society members accomplish this by including Neighborhood Church in their wills and trusts or can make other planned giving choices that support Neighborhood Church while providing income and potential tax benefits during their lifetime. In the less than 20 years since the Legacy Society was established, we have received nearly $800,000 in gifts. For more information about the Legacy Society and testimonials view our new brochure CLICK HERE. Please consider making the Church part of your own personal legacy by completing the PDF form below.

Ways to Pay Your Pledge

  1. Set up an automatic monthly payment with your bank to Neighborhood Church as if it were a regular bill. Use the church address and in the memo line make sure it says “Pledge 2023-2024.” The bank will send the church a check at whatever frequency you choose, though monthly is preferred.

  2. Provide your account and routing numbers so the church can make an automatic monthly deduction via ACH on or around the 15th of each month. Reach out to Operations Director, Elizabeth Campo if this is how you’d like to pay! 

  3. Use VANCO to pay with a credit or debit card. Just choose the date and amount! You can change your preferences at any time.  VANCO does have more fees associated with it, so this is not our preferred option.

  4. Make a gift of stock. Contact our Operations Directior, Elizabeth Campo if you want to take advantage of this option.

  5. If you’re already using the required minimum distribution (RMD) from your retirement account, you can use the same account to pay your pledge and it will count towards your RMD.
