Annual Program Fund
The Annual Program Fund (APF) is the largest source of un-restricted income for the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). All funding for the APF comes from our member congregations*.
Congregational Giving Rates and Making Payments
Talking to Your Congregation about APF
These resources about stewardship, generosity, and the role of the UUA APF in bringing the vision of our liberal religious tradition to life are for use by individuals, congregations, and districts.
Resources for budgeting and communication around the APF can be found in the Annual Program Fund Tool Kit.
The Stewardship Sermon Award was established in 1984 and is given annually for the sermon judged most effective in exploring and promoting financial support of our UU faith. Submissions will be accepted until February 18, 2013.
Where APF Money Goes
Congregational contributions to the APF fund many aspects of the UUA.
The UUA redistributes a portion of the total APF contributions to all nineteen districts in the form of grants.
Giving to the Annual Program Fund is recognized and affirmed by a variety of methods, including at distinction at General Assembly; and in the Annual Report on Giving.
*As covenantal partners, all member congregations are expected to contribute annually to the APF in support of the UUA.
For more information contact apf @ uua.org.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
