Christmas Fund Donors

The Christmas Fund for Veterans of the Cross and the Emergency Fund is blessed each year by members, friends, and congregations of the United Church of Christ that give in support of this ministry. We are grateful for every single gift that is given. Because of these gifts, the Pension Boards is able to give direct financial assistance to UCC clergy and lay church employees who are struggling to make ends meet in retirement or are facing an urgent situation that demands resources they don’t have.

Hundreds of local congregations annually support the Christmas Fund offering, one of the four Special Mission Offerings of the United Church of Christ.

We celebrate and recognize the congregations that lead the way in giving. These congregations have abundantly opened their hearts and their wallets in support of the people whom the Christmas Fund serves.
