Beyond Our Walls Grant Program

By putting faith into action, we believe the world will be a better place.

In 2012, the UUFH membership generously voted to earmark a certain percentage of its annual operating budget to philanthropic initiatives in the form of Beyond Our Wall Grants. The grant dollar amounts vary, usually ranging between $250 and $1000. Applications are accepted annually and reviewed by the Beyond Our Walls Committee (BOW@uufh.org) with an annual deadline of April 15. Recipients are contacted by the end of May.
