UTO Grants

The United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through UTO, individuals are invited to embrace and deepen a personal daily spiritual discipline of gratitude. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings, and to distribute the 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout The Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion. If you'd like to learn more about how to apply for a UTO grant in East Carolina, click here.

In early November, The United Thank Offering also announced a call for papers on the theology of gratitude. If this is something you'd like to learn more about, click here .

An informational webinar for those interested in learning more about UTO Grants will take place on January 14th. Click here to learn more.
