The Endowment Fund Committee (EFC) is accepting applications for grants to fund projects that support UUCF and/or the broader community. Priority will be given to requests that best reflect UUCF’s mission and strategic goals. For example, in recent years, grants have been made to support Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions community outreach, redesign the UUCF website, develop a 4th Grade RE curriculum to explore the history of racial justice in Virginia and purchase materials for the handbell ensemble. Learn more about the grant request process here or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For a grant request form, click here. The EFC will accept requests throughout the year, but encourages applicants to submit their request forms as early as possible in the 2019-20 congregational year. Earlier applications have a greater chance of approval because funds are more likely to still be available.
