Contibuting to Unity on the River

Unity on the River is the place where your spiritual being is nourished.
 

Many Unity members practice tithing. Tithing is any systematic plan of giving to your spiritual source.

According to Unity’s principles of prosperity, systematic and orderly giving makes room in your life for systematic and orderly receiving.

 

Giving according to a system means that you are consciously putting God in a central place of your financial affairs. Jesus said that if we put God first "all these things will be added unto you.”

REGARDING RECENT CHANGES

Section 307, One-time election for qualified charitable distribution to split-interest entity;

increase in qualified charitable distribution limitation. Section 307 expands the IRA charitable

distribution provision to allow for a one-time, $50,000 distribution to charities through charitable

gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, and charitable remainder annuity trusts, effective for

distributions made in taxable years beginning after the date of enactment of this Act. Section 307

also indexes for inflation the annual IRA charitable distribution limit of $100,000, effective for

distributions made in taxable years ending after the date of enactment of this Act.

 

Section 325, Roth plan distribution rules. Under current law, required minimum distributions

are not required to begin prior to the death of the owner of a Roth IRA. However, pre-death

distributions are required in the case of the owner of a Roth designated account in an employer

retirement plan (e.g., 401(k) plan). Section 325 eliminates the pre-death distribution requirement

for Roth accounts in employer plans, effective for taxable years beginning after December 31,

2023. Section 325 does not apply to distributions which are required with respect to years

beginning before January 1, 2024, but are permitted to be paid on or after such date.

 

This law also increased the age for Required Minimum Distributions from 72 to 73, effect January 1, 2023 and will gradually increase it to 75 by 2033.   There are also changes to the catch-up limits, among other things.

Anchor 1
Prosperity


There is always enough—money, health, time, creativity. True prosperity lies in knowing Spirit as your unfailing source of abundance. Use these resources to connect with and realize your unlimited supply.

MATTHEW FOX 

"People ought to tithe because they belong to a community that they believe in and they want to see prosper.

RABBI SHONI LABOWITZ 

"I know well the power of tithing and what it can do in someone's life. 

ON TITHING to UOTR...

Unity on the River (UOTR) is the place where your spiritual being is nourished.
 

Many Unity members practice tithing. Tithing is any systematic plan of giving to your spiritual source.

According to Unity’s principles of prosperity, systematic and orderly giving makes room in your life for systematic and orderly receiving.
 

Giving according to a system means that you are consciously putting God in a central place of your financial affairs. Jesus said that if we put God first "all these things will be added unto you.”


In Unity you will never be pressured to donate. This is an individual matter, and your own understanding and demonstration of the principles of prosperity will guide you to ways of joyous and generous giving.


As we grow together in this, you will find your church is enabled to bring its teachings to more and more people in new and helpful ways. UOTR knows that you have been blessed in your giving and works and prays to know how to double that blessing by using your gifts in the wisest and best ways it can.
         

Giving is a way of life. It includes money-giving but is by no means limited to it. The gift of your time, skill or talent is valuable.

 

Understanding the spiritual principles of prosperity, not the size of the gift, makes it possible for you to receive as freely as you have given.
