What is your congregation’s next big plan to strengthen your organization or achieve growth? Maybe the Pacific Northwest UU Growth Foundation (PNUUGF) can help.
PNUUGF offers loans and grants to congregations in the Pacific Northwest District and British Columbia. Traditionally they make loans for building acquisitions, expansions, or upgrades that exceed what Chalice Lighter grants can fund. They also fund development and education of ministers and interns in conjunction with the Pacific Northwest UUMA chapter.
Some congregations are seeing a renewed optimism regarding the economy, resulting in increased pledges after years of staying flat. This increase often motivates congregations to make plans for their futures. If that’s true for your congregation, and if your plans require funding, think of the Growth Foundation.
You can get started by visiting the PNUUGF website. If you’d like more information or would like to discuss other ways PNUUGF may assist your congregation, contact president Stan Jewett or use the contact info on the Pacific Northwest UU Growth Foundation home page.
