United Thank Offering 2018 Young Adult Grants

Do you have a new project or ministry you would like to implement in your parish or community? Encourage a young adult in your congregation to apply for one of the 2018 Young Adult Grants from the United Thank Offering (UTO)!

UTO has just announced that they will grant up to ten Young Adult Grants for 2018. UTO will fund up to $2,500 in start-up costs per grant for new ministries. The focus of this year’s grant process is The Jesus Movement: Evangelism, Reconciliation and Creation Care.

In order to be considered by UTO, the grant must:

  • Be submitted by a young adult between the ages of 19 and 30.
  • Request funding for a brand new start-up ministry in the church. UTO will not grant funds to programs that are already established.
  • Be submitted first to the applicant’s diocese and endorsed by the Bishop. Each diocese may only submit one young adult grant application to UTO for consideration.
  • Fit the criteria and focus of the grant process. The criteria and focus of the 2018 Young Adult Grants may be found here.

Young adults in the Diocese of Indianapolis who are interested in applying for grant funding must submit their applications to the Diocesan Office by Tuesday, October 17th. Applications will be reviewed and one will be selected to move on for consideration by UTO.

If an application is selected to move on to UTO, it will be submitted to the diocesan office by UTO’s November 3rd deadline. Applicants selected to receive the grants will be notified of their awards in late January 2018.
