Unitarian Universalist Funding Program: Fund for a Just Society

Deadline: 15 September 2018

Unitarian Universalist Funding Program is currently inviting non-Unitarian Universalist groups in the U.S. and Canada that meet all 3 of the following criteria:

  • uses community organizing to bring about systemic change leading to a more just society; and
  • mobilizes those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from resources, power and the right to self-determination; and
  • has an active focused campaign to create systemic change.

Funding Information

The maximum grant is $15,000. Most grants are between $6,000 and $8,000. Challenge or matching grants are a possibility. Grants are given for one year. Second-year funding is possible after submitting a new proposal and a final (or interim) report. Third-year funding for the same project is unusual.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Priority is given to active, specific campaigns to create change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect their lives.
  • The program expects the organization’s infrastructure, including leadership, membership and systems of accountability to be developed by the time of the application.
  • 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 are welcome.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted at the address given on the website.

Eligible Countries: Canada and United States
