United Thank Offering Grants
The 2023 United Thank Offering grant application materials are now available. Over the next 3 years, The United Thank Offering, in the spirit of Matthew 25:36, will focus on areas of ministry that serve those who society has left out and left behind. Therefore, the UTO grant focus for 2023 will be on innovative mission and ministry projects addressing all aspects of the worldwide incarceration crisis, specifically preventative programs and intervention, prisoner support outreach, prison reform work, or post-prison re-entry.
The deadline for submission of a completed application (and required documents) is 5pm (EST) on Friday, January 6, 2023 for Anglican Communion and those applying in a language other than English, and 5pm (EST) on Friday, March 10, 2023 for dioceses of The Episcopal Church.
