Share the Plate
Do you know a nonprofit based in the Four Corners area that is doing important social justice work? Might they be in need of financial support?
August is the month when the Social Responsibility and Justice Coordinating Team accepts nominations from the congregation for new recipients of our Share the Plate collections. In September the Coordinating Team reviews received nominations and selects four recipients. Each selected recipient will be given donations for a three-month period in a year-long cycle which begins in October.
In the process of selection, the Coordinating Team reviews information provided by the nominator about the organization, with special attention to the following criteria:
*Is the organization a nonprofit based in the Four Corners area?
*Is its work focused on pressing social justice issues?
*How strongly does its work align with current UUFD social justice teams and priorities (Basic Needs, LGBTQIA+, Healing Racism, Environmental Justice)?
To nominate a nonprofit to receive Share the Plate funds, complete a nomination form and return to the SRJ Coordinating Team care of Bonnie Miller by August 31. Forms are available during social time after each Sunday service in August, or complete the following online nomination form which will be sent directly to the SRJ Team once submitted.
Our congregation is persistently generous in donations to Share the Plate, with a monthly average near $1000 or more in recent times. We hear from organizations that have received our donations that our funds make a significant impact in their ability to fulfill their mission in our community. Show your love for your favorite nonprofit and nominate!
