Online and Offline Giving Options During COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

Due to the recent COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and the  restrictions limiting us from having worship in face-to-face settings, we need to find another ways to keep everything happening at All Souls.

If you want to donate to All Souls, you can click on the link provided to our secure donations server.

On this site, there are four options for your donation — 2020 Pledges,  Capital Fund Drive, Collection Plate, and General Fund.

Pick the desired options for your donation.  Your donation can be a one-time donation or a recurring donation (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or yearly).

If you want to send a check, please mail your check to:

All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church
9449 Ellerbe Road
Shreveport LA  71106

Please indicate on the memo line of your check if your check is for the 2020 pledge campaign, the capital fund drive, the collection plate, or the general fund.

We will post a link with this information every week when we post information on our Sunday worship service.

Thanks for your continued support during these challenging times.

Give Away the Plate for November 2018

Our “Give Away the Plate” recipient for November 2018 is The Philadelphia Center.  From their website:

The Philadelphia Center developed in the spring of 1990 as concerned citizens responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic as it spread into the Shreveport area of Louisiana.  Over the past 20 years, The Philadelphia Center has expanded to become the only HIV/AIDS resource center in Region VII.  The Philadelphia Center serves the parishes of Caddo, Bossier, Webster, Claiborne, Bienville, Red River, DeSoto, Sabine, and Natchitoches.

For the month of November 2018, All Souls will donate half of all our non-pledge income to the Philadelphia Center for a sponsorship of their 2019 Resolution Run in January.
