Fund for a Just Society – Sep 16

Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations Invites Proposals for Fund for a Just Society

Inspired by the richness and diversity of its liberal religious tradition, the mission of the Unitarian Universalist Funding Program (UUFP) is to promote the influence of Unitarian Universalist Association principles through grantmaking.

To that end, UUFP is inviting applications for its Fund for a Just Society. Through the program, grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded to non-Unitarian Universalist groups in the U.S. and Canada who are engaged in community organizing aimed at bringing about systemic change leading to a more just society; are working to mobilize those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from resources, power, and the right to self-determination; and have an active campaign to create systemic change.

Priority will be given to active, specific campaigns to create change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect their lives. The fund 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

Completed applications must use the format detailed on the UUFP website and be postmarked by the September 15 deadline.

UUFP does not award grants to individuals and it will only consider funding films, publications, or curricula if they are an integral part of a strategy of collective action for social change.

See the Unitarian Universalist Funding Program website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: September 16, 2019
