UUFG Foundation News

Congratulations to the newly appointed Foundation Director, Mary Anthony. Mary has served in a variety of roles at UUFG including Governing Board trustee, OWL teacher, and Worship Associate. She brings a wealth of experience to the Foundation and we look forward to the great things to come with her joining our team.

 The Foundation is most grateful to our outgoing Director Lauren Samuels who served a 6 1/2 year term as a Foundation Director, most recently in the Chair position. Lauren was integral to the advances within the Foundation and she is greatly appreciated for all of her contributions. Her hard work and dedication to the Foundation will benefit UUFG for years to come

CPR and First Aid Course was a great success.

 One of the grants funded by the UUFG Foundation in the 2022 spring grant cycle was CPR and First Aid Classes sponsored by the UUFG Safety Committee.

 This six hour course held on Saturday, June 18, 2022 was taught by Captain Conrad Irving, Director & Community Safety Educator from Gainesville Fire Rescue. The class was open to all UUFG members and friends and free of charge for attendees.

 According to Jeff Dunn who organized and attended the training, “The course was excellent, and the presenter was outstanding. In all my years as a health care professional this CPR class was the absolute best. The teacher was engaging, current (regarding American Heart Association CPR changes), an experienced paramedic x15 years with Gainesville Fire Rescue, and fun!” Thank you to the Safety Committee for organizing such a successful and important class.

 Grant cycle begins this fall

The Foundation will accept grant proposals again this fall. If you have another great idea that will improve UUFG congregation or grounds, please consider submitting a proposal this fall.
