Stewardship and Development at General Assembly
Annual Program Fund
Support of the Annual Program Fund (APF) not only amplifies the power of each congregation, it also strengthens and grows neighboring UU congregations and communities across the country and internationally. Collectively we accomplish more than any of us could do alone.
When congregations fully fund their annual APF requests, our covenantal promise to each other is realized and our movement can flourish. The Congregational Giving team is happy to connect with your congregation’s treasurer or other leadership to discuss APF giving. They can be reached at email@example.com.

Faithify: Crowdfunding Unitarian Universalism
Faithify is the UUA's crowdfunding platform for UU ministry projects sponsored by congregations, UU entities, and individual UUs. This includes everything from youth work to justice, service, buildings, staff positions, and emerging ministries. Since 2014, Faithify has helped raise $1.7 million to support 436 different campaigns! Sign up for Faithify's e-newsletter to stay up-to-date on current campaigns seeking support.
The Office of Legacy Gifts assists individuals and congregations by offering guidance on a wide range of giving opportunities including charitable bequests, life income arrangements such as gift annuities, gifts of real estate, as well as gifts that use retirement and insurance plan benefits. We are available to help you decide what you want your UU legacy to be. Visit www.uualegacy.org for more information.
In partnership with the UUA’s Ministries and Faith Development office, we have created an In Memoriam presentation that honors generous individuals who supported Unitarian Universalism during their lifetimes, as volunteers with the UUA and as donors. View the Memorial Book and the In Memoriam video of some of the the cherished individuals we lost this past year.
