Congratulations to the 2020 UTO Grant Recipients!
Thank you to everyone who, through a personal spiritual discipline of gratitude, contributed to the United Thank Offering’s 2019 Ingathering. As a result of your gratitude and generosity, we raised $1,548,013.66 in thank offerings. Of this, $30,600 went to support six Young Adult and Seminarian Grants within the focus of Holy Gifts: Bringing together our blessings and gifts to breathe love, liberation, and life into our communities. Additionally, UTO awarded 27 grants as a part of the annual grant process that utilizes the remainder of the 2019 Ingathering funds, or $1,484,693.66. This year, the focus of our granting process was Bless: Share faith, practice generosity and compassion, and proclaim the Good News of God in Christ with hope and humility. The UTO Board received almost $3.4 million in requests in 2020. With your help and the encouragement that you give to others to join the United Thank Offering, we hope to raise additional funds in the coming year to support even more of our wonderful applicants next year. Remember that every penny given to the United Thank Offering is given away the following year to support innovative mission and ministry in The Episcopal Church. Since our official founding in 1889, UTO has awarded 5,331 grants for a total of $140,177,924.73.
