Grants are not made to individuals. Generally, grants are not given for equipment, capital campaigns, or endowments. Grants are not made for activities that are part of the ongoing work of UU institutions. Grants may not be used as a pass-through from a UU congregation to a local non-profit organization, but may go towards enhancing UU involvement in a project.
The maximum grant is $20,000. The average grant is 8,800. “Challenge” or “matching” grants are commonly granted to encourage UU generosity, and to increase UU support for social action.

We are not sustaining funders. See the complete application process.
