Generously Investing for Tomorrow (GIFT)
GIFT is the pilot funding program for the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the Southern Region developed as part of an effort to identify viable and sustainable alternatives to the existing Annual Program Fund and district funding structures.
GIFT changes the way we fund our district, regional, and national programs in two important ways:
- Congregations in the Southern Region make one pledge, to both the UUA and Region (formerly Districts).
- Congregational contribution requests are based on a fixed percentage (7%) of certified expenditures, rather than on membership totals.
For Southern Region congregations, the GIFT Program began in the 2014 Fiscal Year, and will continue into Fiscal Year 2016
Please join with us on this bold experiment! Your participation and feedback (email southerngenerousity [at] uua [dot] org) are essential to the success of this pilot! We are here to help answer any questions you may have!
Your continued generosity has allowed us to do so much together!
