Dear Chalice Lighter,

Thank you for pledging your support for growing Pacific Northwest congregations through the Chalice Lighter program. Since its inception in 1990, you have provided over $800,000 to help our congregations grow! This is pay-it-forward generosity, at its best.

This is our Fall 2017 Call: Fund Growth Technology Initiative Grants.

Please help your fellow congregations communicate more effectively, inclusively, and vibrantly! Previous calls devoted to tech grants led to 15 grants of up to $2500 in 2013 and 2015 and revealed that significant unmet need remains, particularly for slightly larger grants. Tech grants have funded microphones, speakers, web conferencing equipment, video screens, projectors, assisted listening devices, and more. Grants of up to $4000 will be funded by this call. You can access the tech grant application in the Chalice Lighter section of pnwduua.org.

What was funded with the most recent calls? The Spring 2016-17 Call resulted in a grant of $13,811 to help the UU Congregation at Willamette Falls in Oregon City, OR! Thank you!

Please respond now with your $20 contribution.We are grateful for whatever you can contribute. Payments will be accepted towards this call through December 4, 2017. Ten percent of each call reimburses expenses to administer the program. If you prefer to make your payment online, please use the donation page link. You are encouraged to sign up for emailed call letters and to use electronic payments to lower our administrative costs. For your convenience, you may donate for all three of this year’s calls at once.  If mailed, send your check, payable to PNWD Chalice Lighters to: PNWD Chalice Lighters, 7511 Greenwood Avenue North, #414, Seattle, WA 98103-4627. Include the PNWD-CL designation on both your check and payment envelope.

Questions may be directed to pnwdchalicelighters@pwruua.org. Thank you for your generosity!

Sincerely yours,

Dave Cauffman
