  2. Congratulations to the 2019 UTO Grant Recipients! The UTO Board is very happy to announce the 2019 regular UTO Grant recipients. We were able to award 33 grants this year. A list and description of each can be found at, and the brochures will be at the distribution center shortly. This year the focus was Go: Crossing boundaries created by race, culture, and economics to create communities that listen deeply and learn to live like Jesus. Each project will help break down barriers created by society and will result in new communities of people living out the Gospel. Through your gratitude and generosity, our Ingathering total was $1,535,740.55, which reflects an increase of more than $200,000! We received 75 applications totaling more than $4 million, so there were a number of projects that we were unable to fund. It is our sincere hope that we will continue to increase the practice of gratitude and giving so that next year we can fund even more great projects. Since 1889, UTO has awarded 5,296 grants for a total of $138,629,911.07. For a complete list of all the grants awarded, please check out our website:
