Announcing the 2023 Special Appeal : BUUF Goes Carbon Neutral

This year our Special Appeal is a commitment to “Imagine a New World” by reducing BUUF’s carbon impact on our world.  With your generous help, we would like to fund a multi-year plan to reach a 45% reduction in the carbon footprint of our buildings and grounds by 2030 and to become carbon neutral (or Net Zero) by 2050.  In the first year we will: 

  • Establish a BUUF team to create the initial plan, in consultation with the congregation; 
  • Complete the Cool Congregations carbon footprint calculator for our building and outdoor space;
  • Coordinate with the UUA’s Green Sanctuary Program, the Idaho Chapter of the Interfaith Power and Light, Boise’s Climate Action Team and others;
  • Educate and engage the congregation and the public by bringing in expert speakers about our carbon footprints and how to reduce them in order to cope with and adapt to global warming;
  • Switch to clean electricity; and reduce BUUF emissions by replacing energy inefficient windows and doors, and replacing greenhouse gas emitting equipment with electric equivalents.
  • If you would like to pay for you Special Appeal Donation via check, stock or a Donor Advised Fund, please contact Patty N. and Rachel S. before the auction closes.
