A few committees assist the Board of Trustees in meeting their responsibilities for governing the organization and stewarding the resources of the Fellowship.

Building & Grounds Committee

The Building & Grounds Committee works to maintain and improve the Fellowship’s building and outside areas by coordinating skilled volunteers; setting special Spring/Fall Cleaning days for congregational involvement; recommending needed expenditures to the Board; and coordinating projects with the Green Sanctuary Committee, all to provide a safe, attractive, and ecologically sound environment for our Fellowship.
Any concerns about maintenance or recommendations for improvements are appreciated and should be tagged “Building & Grounds” and sent by e-mail to uufa@uuathensga.org

Personnel Team

Convened by the President-elect at the request of the Minister or Board of Trustees, the Personnel Team assists the Minister (as chief of staff) with human resource needs. Tasks may include reviewing job descriptions for advertising, interviewing candidates, recommending employment policies to the Board of Trustees, and more.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee advises the Treasurer and other Board trustees regarding their fiduciary responsibilities. They review and advise the Board and Minister on yearly budget needs and review monthly expenses with UUFA’s Bookkeeper, and serve as stewards of the weekly offering collections.

Planned Giving Committee

The Planned Giving Committee’s mission is to accept, reject, hold, invest, and administer certain gifts, bequests, devises, benefits of trust, and property of any sort, without limitation as to amount or value, that are donated to UUFA for future use and not for operating funds or specific capital projects.  The PGC administers and manages the Endowment Fund, the Planned Giving Fund, and any other funds assigned to it by the UUFA Board of Trustees.  The PGC currently consists of John Bleyle, Stu Fors, David Jarrett, Jane King, and Jim Ponsoldt.

FUNraising Committee

To meet the budgeted fundraising goal set each year, members of the board of trustees establish specific events and projected net revenue from each and then find specific individuals willing to help make each one a reality.  For more, click here.
