2019 UUCGN Charity Partnership Grant Applications

What is your volunteering passion here in southwest Florida? The Social Justice Committee wants to hear from you!

The Social Justice Committee (SJC) of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples (UUCGN) is excited to announce a new UUCGN Charity Partnership Grant application process. During the months of June and July, we will be accepting grant applications from qualified non-profit organizations to become our Charity Partner for the 2019-2021 program years. Preference will be given to organizations whose mission aligns with our own and which are championed by UUCGN members and friends – that is, those to which they are currently giving their time, talent, and treasure, and where others can find opportunities to volunteer.  

SJC members will review applications in August and September and recommend a finalist list of up to four organizations. Finalists will prepare a short video to pitch their organization in September, and SJC will present the videos to the Congregation in October.  The Congregation will do a ranked vote on the finalist organizations in October for the partnership funding that begins in April 2019.   The three-page application form is available via email. Have your organization’s development representative write to socialjustice@uunaples.org and request an application form. Grant partnership applications must be submitted to socialjustice@uunaples.org by the end of July 2018. If you have questions, please contact SJC Co-Chairs Pam Gharabally or Ellen Prokopow at socialjustice@uunaples.org.
