The Unitarian Universalist Funding Program (UUFP) is a denominational grant-making program of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
Inspired by the richness and diversity of our liberal religious tradition, the mission of the UUFP is to promote the influence of Unitarian Universalist principles through grantmaking. With funds generously provided by the Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock, the UUFP awards grants to Unitarian Universalist (UU) and non-UU projects and organizations. Grants are made that:
- Support the work of social justice.
- Strengthen Unitarian Universalist institutions.
- Transform gratitude for being into generosity of living.
- Make Unitarian Universalism more visible in the world.
Grants are awarded through four Funds with distinct priorities and guidelines:
- Fund for Unitarian Universalism
Makes grants to strengthen UU institutions and community life.
- Fund for UU Social Responsibility
Makes grants to projects that increase UU involvement in social responsibility Grants include Congregation-Based Community Organizing (CBCO), Get out the Vote (GOTV) and grants for immediate action.
- Fund for International Unitarian Universalism
Makes grants to strengthen Unitarian / Universalist organizations or projects working internationally.
- Fund for a Just Society
Makes grants to nonprofit organizations addressing issues of social and economic justice. Grants are given to projects that use community organizing to bring about systemic change.
