Special Collections Nomination Form

“Churches need to create a climate in which charitable giving is the hallmark of a life well lived. Being a generous person or family is one of life’s great privileges. Creating this attitude is primary – the church’s operating budget is secondary.”  – Michael Durall, The Almost Church  


UUFD sponsors nine special collections during the church year from September through May. All recipients of special collections must have non-profit status. Pre-designated recipients include the UUFD WE Pantry, UUFD Minister’s Discretionary Fund, Unitarian Universalist Advocacy Network of Illinois (UUANI), Unitarian Universalist Service Committee’s (UUSC’s) annual Guest at Your Table Fundraiser, and Northern Public Radio through WNIU/WNIJ.  We invite nominations from our members for the four remaining special collections. Two of these are reserved for local organizations and the other two are open category, that is, local or non-local. One of these four may be substituted by an emergency relief collection if needed. 

This year this form is due to the church office by noon Friday, June 28, 2023.
