Stewardship funding raising theme: "Making Dreams Come True"

In Unitarian Universalism a stewardship drive, I am learning, is not so much about giving money to "the church" as it is about contributing money to your fellow parishioners so that resources are available to pursue common goals.

Contributing money is not about supporting an institution as much as building relationships.

Pledging money is basically saying to one's fellow congregants I will contribute some of my resources to you to help make our dreams held in common come true.

Perhaps the theme of this year's fund drive for the Brockport Unitarian Universalist Fellowship should me "Making dreams come true." Another theme I liked which is a possibility is "Giving to Grow."

Have you used a theme for your fund drive? If so, what one seemed to work best?
