You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

Like other churches, BUCC requires generosity and fundraising to meet the operating and outreach needs of the church. Nothing happens without this. Donations may be earmarked for special ministries (children or youth ministry, building fund, LGBT outreach, or more) or into our general budget.


General Fund - This is the main fund supporting church operations, including buildings and grounds- to keep the building clean, safe and functioning, with the lights on; worship expenses; church administration; Christian education; and staff- a fulltime pastor, plus office and music staff. Donations to this fund go into the annual budget.

Building Fund- Like our homes, church buildings have constant maintenance needs and sometimes large projects. We just finished a major deck project that involved stabilizing the hillside, hiring of structural engineers, and a full deck rebuild. We know that we will have upcoming major parking lot repairs, air conditioning repairs, playground renovation, and more. Sometimes there are surprises. Donations to this fund go into a long-term building and maintenance budget.

Mission and Outreach - Donations can be made specifically to the Board of Mission and Outreach. These donations are used for projects sponsored by the Board, including the BUCC food pantry and hygiene items, BUCC little library, Kiva fund, or other Mission and Outreach ministries.
