Foundation Grant Application

Last year your Foundation granted funds for:

· Meals4Kids

· Bedding for Family Promise

· Sending UUFG leaders to UU training through the Ginny and Paul Bird leadership fund

· Repairing the labyrinth

· Replacing the grounds equipment shed

· Establishing the wood debris silo after Hurricane Irma

· Consultant fees to assess UUFG

Because our investments were so productive last year and members generously donated or bequeathed gifts, there will be a total of up to $15,500 to grant for the coming year.

If you have suggestions that will further UU -ism and are not part of our normal operating budget, grant application forms are available below and in the hallway across from Cam, our administrator’s office. All grant requests should be submitted by April 15, 2018. Remember to have your committee chair sign off on your request.

If not all of the current grant allotment is committed, another application cycle is in the fall.

Questions? See any member of the Foundation (Lauren Samuels, Alice Gridley, Thomas Mareci, Jack Rivers, and Pete Runyan.)
