Annual Program Contribution

Annual Program Calculation

Annual Program Contributions (APC) from member societies constitute over 70% of the operating revenues of the CUC. They provide the CUC with the means to “Build Vital Unitarian Communities” and is an important part of the relationship between the CUC and its congregations.

The CUC Board undertook a review of its previous method of calculating the APC which was based on a per member amount. After several years of consultation with congregations and treasurers, a new method for calculating the APC was approved at the 2019 Annual General Meeting.

This new method combines a percentage of donations to congregations and a percentage of per member amounts. This method is aimed at being more equitable and manageable for congregations, and at sustaining a consistent revenue stream for the operations of the CUC.
