United Thank Offering providing special anniversary grants
The Episcopal Church United Thank Offering is providing special “seed money” grants of $12,500 to one bishop in each of the Church’s nine provinces, and to the Presiding Bishop, for a total of $125,000.
Part of the celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the United Thank Offering, these one-time special anniversary grants are intended to be used for a project in each province that will reflect the fourth Anglican Mark of Mission: To seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind to pursue peace and reconciliation.
The project must be completed by May 1, 2015. The grants that are selected will be showcased at 78th General Convention in Salt Lake City, UT in June/July 2015.
Applications are available now; deadline is August 1. Applications available here
For more information contact the Rev. Heather Melton, United Thank Offering coordinator.
Known worldwide as UTO, the United Thank Offering grants are awarded for projects that address human needs and help alleviate poverty, both domestically and internationally.
