Unitarian Universalist Funding Program: Fund for a Just SocietyDeadline: September 15, 2017
The Unitarian Universalist Funding Program (UUFP) is a denominational grantmaking program of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The mission of the UUFP is to promote the influence of Unitarian Universalist principles through grantmaking. The Fund for a Just Society makes grants to nonprofit organizations (non-Unitarian Universalist groups) addressing issues of social and economic justice. Grants are given to projects that:
- Use community organizing to bring about systemic change leading to a more just society
- Mobilize those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from resources, power and the right to self-determination
- Have an active focused campaign to create systemic change
Priority is given to active, specific campaigns to create change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect individual lives. The Association 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.
Amount: Most grants will range from $6,000-$8,000 with the maximum grant being $15,000.
Eligibility: Non-Unitarian Universalist groups in the U.S. and Canada. Organizations must have developed infrastructure, including leadership, membership, and systems of accountability by the time of the application.
