Fund for a Just Society – Sep 30

Unitarian Universalist Association Invites Applications to 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 effective grantmaking.

To that end, UUFP welcomes applications to 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 United States and Canada that are engaged in community organizing to bring about systemic change leading to a more just society; mobilizing those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from resources, power, and the right to self-determination; and have an active, focused campaign to create systemic change.

Priority will be given to campaigns aimed at creating change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect people’s 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.

Although the maximum grant amount is $15,000, most grants will range between $6,000 and $8,000. Grants are not made to individuals, and UUFP will only consider funding for films, publications, or curricula if they are an integral part of a strategy of collective action for social change.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Unitarian Universalist Funding Program website.

Deadline: September 30, 2020
