Retirement to Refirement 65th Birthday Fundraiser

Celebrate the 65th Birthday of Unity of Fairfax on September 17, 2021:  

  • From Retirement to Refirement:  Unity of Fairfax at 65!  

Read Rev. Russ's multi-faceted celebration plan here.  

One facet of our celebration plan is a fundraiser to support our operating fund.

The pandemic has significantly reduced our event and rental income, so now more than ever it is important for maintain strong tithe and love offering income.

The celebration plan goal is to raise $65,000 in unrestricted income above and beyond regular giving.  

This amount represents roughly one month of our current operating expenses.

Here are some fun ways to support "From Retirement to Refirement" based on the number 65:
