The Endowment Committee is accepting grant proposals through Sunday, Mar. 12, 2017 for the UUCB church year of 2017-2018. Proposals will be evaluated by the Endowment Trustees, with their recommendations approved by the UUCB Board. Grants for projects to be funded in the new fiscal year will be announced in the May Congregational Meeting.
The Endowment Committee invites you to apply for a grant supporting a meaningful project.
The Endowment Fund has been created with donations from UUCB members and friends. In the past church year, the Endowment has contributed over $19,000 to projects not covered in the UUCB Annual Budget. Per our charter, approximately 75% of this money goes to Building and Grounds-related Projects, with the remaining 25% to Social Justice and Community Outreach projects.
Building and Grounds Projects have included grants for solar panels, new playground, energy upgrades, replacing leaky skylights and new carpeting for the Sky Room, and remodeling the restroom in the church school wing.
Social Justice and Community Outreach Projects have included grants for the Sunday Forum Program, PRISM, Climate Action Committee, etc.
For more information about the Endowment Fund, or on how to submit a proposal, please contact the Church Administrator or a committee trustee (Don Lilley, Alan Davis or Bill Belew).
* Proposal forms (computer-generated) are available at the church office.
** Contributors to the Endowment Fund have had the pleasure of seeing programs and facility improvements that have been made possible only by their generous gifts.
