A pandemic can’t keep us from partying!! UUMarin is continuing the observance of our 70th anniversary with an Online Auction this fall. As we enter our seventh decade, we continue our mission to inspire joy and justice in an imperfect world by sharing life’s journey, celebrating many paths, and acting to make a difference. So many of our activities directly affect the Marin community from advocating for and feeding the homeless, to supporting affordable housing initiatives and from testifying before county supervisors against police cooperation with ICE to working with the immigrant community to assure all are counted in the Census. We have been fortunate to be able to continue our regular services online and to stay connected through many programs for our young people. In the coming year we will continue to provide competitive salaries for our staff and supportive care for our community.

We invite you to join us in our celebration this year by becoming a sponsor of our event, by making a contribution of an item or service that we can offer for sale and by attending our on-line event and bidding enthusiastically. 

Sponsorship is a unique opportunity to showcase a company or recognize a friend, family member, or special occasion while supporting our congregation and the socially-responsible efforts we are engaged in throughout Marin community. We would love for you to solicit businesses you think may sponsor our auction. We will also feature personal sponsorships to honor a person or special occasion. Sponsorship can be made directly on the auction website at charityauction.bid/ActToMakeADifference.  If you would like to print out a sponsorship form at home, you can access it at this link.
