Funding Limit: $10,000 MAXIMUM
Duration: 1 YEAR(s)

OBJECTIVES: Grants are made to non-Unitarian Universalist groups in the U.S.
and Canada that: organize to bring about systemic change leading to a more just society; work with those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from resources, power and the right to self determination; and inspire generosity among the sponsor’s members and member congregations.

Priority is given to groups of people organizing to create change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect their lives. The sponsor welcomes projects that are less likely to receive conventional funding because of the innovative or challenging nature of the work or the economic and social status of the constituency.

The maximum grant is $10,000. Most grants are between $5,000 and $7,000. Grants are given for one year.
