The United Thank Offering (UTO) program, established by the women of the Episcopal Church in 1889, invites Episcopalians to make financial donations in a spirit of gratitude and uses these donations to fund grants for new ministries around the church.
Grant applications must be reviewed at the diocesan level before being submitted to the UTO board.
Annual UTO grant applications for 2019 and guidelines are available at www.episcopalchurch.org/2019-uto-grants. The focus of this grant session is “Go: Crossing boundaries created by race, culture and economics to create communities that listen deeply and learn to live like Jesus.” Applications will be due to firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 18, 2019, and grant awards will be announced in June 2019. Questions may be directed to Betty Murray, diocesan UTO coordinator, at 617-332-5939 or email@example.com.
