United Thank Offering Grants

While we’re not quite ready to release the grant application for 2023 (we’re still in the process of evaluating the 2022 applications), we know that many of you would like to know what kind of projects you’re raising funds for through your thank offerings. Therefore, we are releasing the focus and criteria now and the full application packet will be available in July 2023. 

The focus of all three years will be related to Matthew 25:36. In 2023, UTO will be funding projects addressing the worldwide incarceration crisis. Please read below the full text of the focus for 2023. If you would like to see the criteria for grants, you can find them here.

Over the next three years, the United Thank Offering, in the spirit of Matthew 25:36, will focus on areas of ministry that serve those whom 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
