Endowment CommitteeUUFBR’s Endowment Fund was established to further the cause and principles of The Fellowship and Unitarian Universalism
The 6 Members of the Endowment Committee are elected by the congregation and serve three-year terms.
Like the Board, the Endowment Committee is accountable directly to the congregation.
The Endowment Fund: Sustaining the Legacy, the Continuity, and the Future of UUFBR and our UU Principles
The Endowment Fund receives gifts beyond the annual operating budget of the fellowship, providing individuals the opportunity to realize the satisfaction of permanently supporting Unitarian Universalist values and principles in our congregation and the larger community.
It is a chance to leave a legacy for those who will come after us – a chance to keep our chalice light alive
Ways of Giving
Are you aware of the Memorial Fund? Gifts may be made at any time and in any amount to honor the memory of members or friends. At the time of death, friends may be invited give to the UUFBR Memorial Fund in lieu of other remembrances. Memorial Fund cards are available through the office.
Remember The Occasion
We now have a program for gifts (in any amount) received in honor of, or to celebrate, a person or occasion. Acknowledgement Cards will be sent to honoree and donor.
Please inquire about our Brick Pathways Program. If you decide to honor someone by having a brick installed, you may designate “Brick-Endowment” on your check.
The Endowment Fund provides grants for long term development and special projects which shall “further the cause and principles of The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton or Unitarian Universalism”.
The Endowment Committee has given grants allowing UUFBR to be A Teaching Congregation, seeded Terrific Tuesdays Program, and upgraded the sanctuary sound system. Grants have also been given to Barton’s Boosters and River of Grass UU Congregation.
The Committee considers grant requests three times a year in June, October, and February.
