The trustees of the UUFP Endowment are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2015 grants. We received two proposals that very clearly supported the Endowment goals of supporting the long term mission of Unitarian Universalism and our congregation.
The first proposal was submitted by Rev. Andrew Millard with a request to fund part of the transportation costs of our Student Minister, Chris Hockman, as she commutes here from Richmond twice a week. The Trustees approved $300 toward these costs to be paid by a single check later this summer.
The second application for an endowment grant came from Chris Hockman for a program to help support the startup and ongoing relationship with the Boys and
Girls Club in the nearby Aqueduct Apartments. They have up to 80 young people per day, ages 6 to 18 that need help keeping up in school and homework. Christine’s plan is to expose as many of the children as possible to positive role models and positive recreational and educational experiences. The Trustees approved up to $500 to support this project for 2015-16 and will consider future funding based on success, competing ideas, and availability of funds.
The trustees would like to thank these two proposal writers for their interest in furthering Unitarian Universalism and UUFP ideals in their proposed programs. We look forward to continuing offering grant funds for future innovative UU projects.
Trustees: Parker Stokes, Roy Schilling, Judy Remsberg
