2017 United Thank Offering

2017 United Thank Offering Grant Application

Applications are now accepted for the 2017 United Thank Offering grants. The focus for the 2017 United Thank Offering grants is Evangelism – Reconciliation: Following Jesus’ way of creating loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships with God, each other, and all creation.

“This is the Jesus Movement and the United Thank Offering is a part of the Jesus Movement,” commented Sandra K. Squires, Ed.D., United Thank Offering Board President. “Join us as the United Thank Offering continues its tradition of thankfulness by awarding grants for 2017.”

Known worldwide as UTO, the United Thank Offering grants are awarded for projects that address human needs and help alleviate poverty, both domestically and internationally in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. United Thank Offering was founded to support innovative mission and ministry that the Episcopal Church budget has not yet expanded to fund and to promote thankfulness and mission in the whole Church.  The funds are not permitted for the continuation of ongoing ministries.

The application and additional information are available here. Application deadline is 5 pm Eastern on March 3, 2017.

Request for Prayers for the 2018 UTO Prayer Booklet

Every three years, the United Thank Offering gathers original prayers from around the Episcopal Church to create a pocket book of prayers available throughout General Convention. For General Convention 2018, UTO is collecting original prayers in nine categories: gratitude, guidance, fear/danger, forgiveness, healing, loneliness, crisis/dealing with disappointment or crisis, love of God, and other.

Children, women, men, clergy, seminarians, or groups may write prayers for this edition of the booklet. Prayers can be submitted in any language and in any format – collect, litany, free form, or prose.  Please submit all prayers by July 1, 2017 using this link.

For more information about United Thank Offering, contact the Rev. Heather Melton, Staff Officer for United Thank Offering, hmelton@episcopalchurch.org.
