Call for Faith-to-Action Nominations

Our Social Action Team asks you to consider nominating an organization – local, national, or even international – that you know embodies the principles of love and social justice as described in our seven UU principles. The first-priority deadline for FTA applications for the 2019-2020 church year is July 15, 2019.

$13,682: That’s how much the Faith-to-Action collections raised in the first 11 months of the 2018-2019 church year!

24: That’s how many organizations and internal UUCC programs have benefitted from our collective generosity so far this church year! We are putting out money where our values lie. Thank you all for your generous expression of love in action.

FAQ’s about the FTA program

“I’ve heard the FTA application is a hassle to fill out.”

You have to compile some basic contact information about the organization you are nominating. You also have to state briefly what the organization does, and why UUs should support it. It is not difficult at all. Click the following button for the nomination form.

Faith-to-Action Nominations for 2019-20

“My organization/program has received funding in the past via the FTA collections. Can’t you just slot me in, without an application?”

For the sake of transparency in our financial dealings, we are requesting that all applicants and applications go through the same process.

“What if I miss the July 15 application deadline? Should I just forget it for this year?”

No. All available slots may not be filled by July 15. Priority will be given to nominations received by July 15, but we will consider nominations until all slots are filled.
