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. In recent years, grants have been made to support Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions community outreach, enhance food security for local students and families in need, carry out analysis of energy usage on the UUCF campus and develop a 4th Grade Religious Exploration (RE) curriculum to explore Virginia’s racial justice history. Most recently, the committee has focused on funding practical projects related to re-opening the campus, including the purchase of the large tent for RE and air filters for the Sanctuary. Read more about the grant request process or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Grant request form is also available online. The EFC will accept requests throughout the year, but encourages applicants to submit request forms as early as possible in the 2021-22 congregational year. Earlier applications have a greater chance of approval because funds are more likely to still be available.
