Our garden needs not only rain, sun and love, but your continued support for which we are so “greenfull”!

Message from Duke
Greetings, I am often asked what the expected donation is to Unity Temple. My answer is, I don’t know. You are the only one who can decide how much to contribute and it should be based on two things. The first thing is that the giving has to feel good. If contributions are made out of obligation, pressure or responsibility, they can often be given begrudgingly. Whatever you choose to give, please make sure you feel really good about it.
The second thing is value. Giving to Unity Temple is an exchange for receiving from Unity Temple. Your gift should match the value of what you are receiving. Perhaps it is the good feeling you have for being part of a spiritual movement that helps countless numbers of people each week. It may be the spiritual nourishment you receive through our programs, inspirational talks and prayer. Or, it may be knowing that we are always here to support you and your loved ones during difficult times. Your contribution represents the value this ministry has in your life and your generosity to support the good it does in this world.
Please know the amount you give to Unity Temple is your choice. We respect that and appreciate the part you play in making this a better world.
