We at Unitarian Universalists San Luis Obispo donates our second Sunday offering each month to a local non-profit actively working directly with people in need in SLO county.  In the past eight years we have given away over $120,000 to worthy causes such as yours.  We are inviting you to apply for one of our grants.

 First:   1) You will need a UU member to sponsor your organization

2)  Your organization must have a presence in SLO County with non-profit 501 (c)(3) status

3)  Fill out the attached application.  This provides important specifics regarding your organization, and asks about the Purpose of your organization [does it align with ours?] and what specific program or project would you expect our funding ($500-$2,000) to support?

We suggest that you review our UUSLO.org  website.  Please look over the attached application, fill it out and email it to outreach.uuslo@gmail.com no later than August 10, 2019, to be considered in the current round of applicants.  We anticipate that ten organizations will be selected to receive one of the offerings beginning in the October 2019 through September 2020 period.  In the past our application cycles have generally been semi-annual, this one is annual.

If you need any help completing the application or have questions, first please contact your UU sponsor; if that individual does not have all your answers, then contact Community Outreach Offering Chair, Judy Hornaday, at the above e-mail address.
