The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations is accepting proposals from non-Unitarian Universalist groups in the U.S. and Canada for community organizing campaigns aimed at creating systemic change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect the lives of those who have been excluded from resources, power, and the right to determination.
Through the Fund for a Just Society, UUAC supports projects that 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.
UUAC does not fund social services, educational programs, or advocacy projects. And grants are not given for the purposes of re-granting; for equipment purchases, capital campaigns, or partisan political efforts; or to educational institutions, medical or scientific research initiatives, or cultural programs. UUAC will consider funding for films, publications, or curricula if they are an integral part of a strategy of collective action for social change. The organization does not fund individuals.
The maximum grant award is $15,000, with most grants ranging between $6,000 and $8,000.
See the UUAC website for program guidelines and application instructions.
