United Thank Offering (UTO)

The United Thank Offering (UTO) provides a way for you to give thanks for your daily blessings with a simple spiritual discipline of dropping coins in a blue box as you say “thanks.” Most congregations in our diocese have a twice-yearly ingathering of UTO coins. These coins add up to thousands of dollars churchwide that are provided in the form of ministry grants both locally and globally.

Contact: Janet Higbie is our diocesan UTO coordinator and can ensure you receive a supply of blue boxes, information, and grant applications.
