The UUMA maintains a recommended scale of minimum fees for services and rights of passage. The last time the scale was updated was 2011 – it’s time!!
Please take a moment to complete this survey concerning the fees you ask and/or receive for services. It is generally understood that called ministers offer rights of passage without charge to members of the congregation. The scale of fees apply to non-members/contributors and to requests for service from those persons and congregations with whom ministers do not have any other formal agreements.. We will be collecting data from our membership, seeking input from partner groups and researching similar industry standards.
The amounts listed below are somewhat flexible, depending on the amount of time to be invested, or the financial situation of the "clients." When applicable, I ask for mileage compensation.
Child dedication $250
Memorial service $200, with interment $300
Weddings $500 (includes pre-marital counseling); plus $85 for rehearsal dinner
