Request dues or tuition assistance

Central is committed to making sure finances are never a barrier to being part of our community.

  • Please allow up to 30 days for us to respond as we evaluate incoming requests.

  • We know the future is uncertain—we just ask that you make your best estimate at this time.

  • Central's financial assistance policy has always worked on the "honor system." We won't ask for financial documentation of any kind; however, in order to provide support in an equitable way, do ask for information about why members may request financial assistance

We rely on you to tell us the amount that you can pay, a number that feels both manageable for your financial situation and fair to Central.

The information provided in this form is kept confidential and will only be reviewed by key membership and finance staff. We won't share this information with any other staff, board members, or clergy.
