Granting Opportunities CUC

A compassionate community of free religious thought, inviting all people to rest, grow, and serve the world.

The  CUC provides opportunities for us a national network to support special initiatives and to have an opportunity to support our own initiatives. These are detailed on the CUC Page Some are described:

Sharing Our Faith

The Sharing Our Faith program provides funds for congregational initiatives which enhance ministry, aid congregational projects and outreach, and enhance the Unitarian Universalist movement in Canada. Once a year, congregations are encouraged to hold a “Sharing Our Faith” worship service focused on the UU faith in Canada, with a special collection for the Sharing Our Faith fund.

Grant applications are due by March 31 of each year with all required documents. Completed applications can be e-mailed to Please note that Sharing Our Faith grants are normally under $5,000. For a larger grant, your congregation may want to consider applying for the Northern Lights award.
