UU leaders across the country are tirelessly tending to our communities through the pandemic. The Unitarian Universalist Association is working alongside our congregations and supporting our UU religious professionals and administrative staff. The impact of COVID-19 is widespread, but some will be hit harder than others.
Gifts to the UUA’s COVID-19 Response Fund go to two resources. Together they allow our UU faith community to financially support those religious communities with greatest need.
- The Disaster Relief Fund allows the UUA to respond flexibly. Priority is given to congregations and related Unitarian Universalist organizations that are responding to the crisis with systemic, collaborative approaches, such as partnering with local organizations to provide assistance in the congregation’s local community.
- The Living Tradition Fund provides assistance to congregational staff and community ministers facing extraordinary health-related expenses, emergency housing needs, and other serious financial challenges in times of crisis.
Our practice here at UUSM is to dedicate half of our non-pledge Sunday offerings to organizations doing work in the world that advances our Unitarian Universalist principles; the other 50% of the offering is used to support the life of our church.
UUSM’s Generous Congregation supports our church community. And together, we uplift the reach and impact of vital organizations doing work we could not do on our own. During both April and May, half of our Sunday offerings will go to the UUA COVID-19 Response Fund. Your donation will show our appreciation for those who are being impacted even as they continue to lead and strengthen our congregations. It is a concrete way to show support and love to the staff and communities most impacted by this health emergency.
Please consider supporting the mission of our church, and the UUA COVID-19 Response Fund. To give right now, text “$10 GCC” to 844-982-0209. (One-time-only credit card registration required.)
