The UCC Our Faith Our Vote (OFOV) campaign coordinating team is pleased to announce that in this pivotal 2020 election season we will again be offering 5 OFOV small grants in the amount of $2500 to UCC congregations for use in local and regional OFOV organizing.
The campaign encourages UCC members and congregations to look critically and from a faith perspective at the issues at stake in the elections, and invites people of faith to engage in responsible dialogue and make informed decisions about the elections. Churches are encouraged to establish forums for considering key issues and reflecting on the importance of nonpartisan faith participation in local, state and national election-year activities.
OFOV uses a three-tiered approach of voter registration, issue education and mobilizing for voter participation. Applications for the UCC 2020 Our Faith Our Vote small grants should focus on one or more of those three key points of engagement.
The application deadline is August 14. Apply today!
