UUCM MISSION STATEMENT

"In a spirit of wonder and with courageous love, we connect, grow, and act."

AUGUST 2017

Our Social Generosity Offering for August will support the Minnesota Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Alliance (MUUSJA), who's mission is to unleash courageous leadership and collective power to build a just and loving world. 

JULY 2017

Our Social Generosity Offering for July supported the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM). Established in 1971, AuSM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to education, advocacy and support designed to enhance the lives of those affected by autism from birth through retirement.

JUNE 2017

Our Social Generosity Offering for June in the amount of $593.00 went to American Refugee Committee (ARC) in their work to provide opportunities and expertise to refugees, displaced people and host communities.  ARC helps people survive conflict and crisis and rebuild lives of dignity, health, security and self-sufficiency. ARC is committed to the delivery of programs that ensure measurable quality and lasting impact for the people they serve. For more information, please visit .

SOCIAL JUSTICE OFFERINGS

UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CHURCH OF MINNETONKA

Every week UUCM donates the entire open offering to a social justice cause, with different organizations each month. Since we began this practice five years ago, UUCM has raised and dispersed over $75,000 to more than 60 different organizations. The recipient of grants from this fund are chosen by the Social Justice Ministry and our Minister.
