Share the Plate
Multiple times throughout the year, we share our collection plate with a member-nominated non-profit organization whose mission and values align with ours. Our Unitarian Universalist principles call for us to work for justice and humanity. By reaching out to the community, we are showing San Antonio who we are and for what we stand.
Prior to the collection, we provide our congregation information about the recipient organization. In addition to raising awareness and donating financially, Share the Plate offers opportunities for our members to develop and deepen connections with these non-profit organizations. Our vision is that we will not only give money, but stay in contact and get involved.
Nominating an Organization
To nominate an organization, email the following information at any time to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The name of the organization.
- A one-sentence description of the organization for the ballot.
- The organization’s Website.
Qualified nominees will be voted on by the congregation in late Spring. The organizations with the highest votes will be recipients of our Share the Plate offering in the upcoming church year.
In addition to the community organizations that we Share our Plate with each year, we also dedicate one monthly offering collection each year to our church and denominational programs: the Community Responsibility Endowment Fund, the Minister’s Discretionary Fund, the Trust Fund of Endowments, and UBarU Camp & Retreat Center. Other non-designated monthly offerings will be used for improvements to the church facilities.
