The special collection for June 11 will go to the UUCJ Foundation Endowment Fund. Our Endowment has been created by forward-looking members and friends who have given long-term gifts to provide permanent financial support for UUCJ’s mission. The Foundation gives 4% of the fund’s assets annually to the church and over the years has contributed $500,000 to UUCJ. Every week we give to support our current expenses. This one time we are asking for gifts for our future health and growth. Please make your check payable to UUCEF and write Jacksonville Endowment in the subject line.
Join us in the Social Hall after service for fun- and fundraising! Food and drinks and registration will be available immediately after service, and the auction will begin at 12:30pm.
Do you have a talent or skill you would like to share or a service you could provide? Turn your time and talent into treasure for our beloved community. Submit it for the 2017 Service Auction! Complete and return form by April 9, 2017. Send to [email protected], submit in person to Elizabeth Anthony or Rachel Miller, or submit online at http://uucj.org/service-auction-donation/
The Special Collection for January will be for The Women’s Center of Jacksonville. The Women’s Center of Jacksonville provides a multitude of services to our community. Their mission is to improve the lives of women through advocacy, support and education. Today, we will hear from Robin Graber, the Director of the Sexual Assault, Rape Recovery Team.
Please stop by their table in the social hall to today to speak with Robin to find out more about their programs.

If you are 70 1/2 or older, making an IRA Charitable Rollover gift is a great way for you to support UUCJ.
- An IRA Charitable Rollover gift can be used to meet all or part of an IRA Required Minimum
- You pay no income tax on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax
deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your taxes.
- The IRA rollover allows donors who are 70½ or older to transfer up to $100,000 directly from
their IRA to charity each year.
Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA; specify that you want to
make an IRA Charitable Rollover.
