Foundation Grant Application

Each year a percent of UUFG Foundation’s earnings becomes available to promote liberal religion in Florida. Emphasis is on support of Unitarian Universalism through appropriate long-term human and physical capital investments. Please note it is for non-budgeted projects within UUFG and in the larger community.

The UUFG Foundation is pleased to announce that $15,280 will be available for grants approved in 2019. The deadline for applications is 2/24/19, the last Sunday in February,

You may download a grant form from the website or pick up a hard copy (see the wall rack near the UUFG Administrator’s office). Fill in the details, have the relevant committee chair sign the application and leave it in the Foundation box in the mailroom opposite the UUFG Administrator’s office. Or you may give or email it to one of the Foundation Directors: Alice Gridley, Tom Mareci, Jack Rivers, Pete Runyan and Lauren Samuels.
