Faithify and Chalice Lighters
There’s still time to donate to our Winter Chalice Lighter Call! We’re asking you to generously support the First Unitarian Church in Cincinnati, Ohio, as they live out our UU values in their community. Located in a diverse and fast-changing urban neighborhood, First Unitarian hopes to grow the congregation by making improvements in the church’s digital media infrastructure. Better digital media infrastructure will help the congregation: extend the reach of their anti-racism work; support their anti-ableism efforts; retain elderly members; bring First Church to over-scheduled, stressed-out families; increase rental income; and better use UUA resources and meeting technology. For more information about First Unitarian’s project, visit: https://www.uua.org/midamerica/giving.
Chalice Lighters is supporting a new Faithify campaign this month, too. All Souls Unitarian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, has launched a Faithify campaign to raise money to support a Children's Defense Fund Freedom School Program this summer. With your financial support, All Souls Unitarian Church will be able to offer six-weeks of programming for 40 school-age children in summer 2020. Developed by the Children’s Defense Fund, this evidence-based program has been proven through rigorous research to improve literacy skills, build character and engage parents. All Souls has already begun to build a diverse coalition of organizations and individuals committed to making a Freedom School a permanent fixture in Indianapolis. Chalice Lighters will contribute 10% of the campaign’s goal to All Souls. To find out how you, too, can support this amazing program, visit https://faithify.org/projects/freedom-school-2020/.
