Twice each month our Sunday offering is donated to causes outside our four walls.  Groups are selected by the Giving in Action Committee to best represent First Unitarian's commitment to put our Faith into Action in our community.  We attempt to balance groups over the course of the year which work to address root causes of injustice as well as meet the immediate needs of the community.  Topics are drawn from an annual survey and in concert with congregational projects and Faith in Action justice circles.  In the coming year, the group plans to maintain relationships with a number of existing partner groups, while still reaching out to new groups.  All will be 501(c)3 charitable organizations.  Below is a list of organizations to which First Unitarian has donated Since 2006.  We encourage everyone to support these worthy causes.

If you or someone you know are affiliated with an organization that may qualify to be a Giving in Action recipient you are encouraged to apply online.
