Social Justice Funds Committee

The Social Justice Funds Committee (SJFC) provides information regarding possible funding for social justice activities and administers two UUCB programs.

Social Justice Grants:

SJFC awards funds from our Social Justice endowment to support start up social justice projects. The Committee accepts requests in the fall – application forms will be posted on this page.

25% Sunday Plate Fund:

Our congregation gives 25% of undesignated Sunday Plate donations to a local project or service agency. SJFC facilitates the selection of the recipient of this fund. In the spring the committee accepts nominees for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins July 1. Nomination forms will be posted on this page.
