The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is accepting proposals for programs addressing social change efforts.
UUA supports a range of programs including: civil and constitutional rights; community organizing; environmental justice; capacity building and rural development. These grants help support projects which 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.
Grants are made to non-Unitarian Universalist groups in the U.S. and Canada that:
- use community organizing to bring about systemic change leading to a more just society;
- mobilize those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from resources, power and the right to self-determination; and
- have an active focused campaign to create systemic change.
They do not fund social services, educational programs, or advocacy projects.
