Unity Temple GIVES

We are committed to living lives of generosity - giving generously of our time and resources to advance our collective vision for the world. One way we do this is by giving away all the money we receive during our Sunday morning collections to non-profit organizations that embody our Unitarian Universalist values. In the past year we’ve contributed over $60,000 in financial support.  

Each year members nominate and vote for recipient organizations. Based on the vote at our Congregational Annual Meeting, the following organizations will receive collections in 2016:

  • ARISE Chicago
  • Bellissima Opera
  • Chicago Legal Advocacy for Incarcerated Mothers (CLAIM)
