United Thank Offering
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 encourages people to notice the good things that happen each day, give thanks to God for those blessings and make an offering for each blessing using a UTO Blue Box. 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.
Visit UTO's website to learn more about how to participate in the United Thank Offering or to order materials to start the program in your congregation. Jeanne King is our diocesan UTO chairperson and available to help.
The United Thank Offering was founded to support innovative mission and ministry in The Episcopal Church and to promote thankfulness and mission in the whole church. One hundred percent of UTO thank offerings—given by individuals and churches—are granted the following year. These awards support a wide range of projects, positions, educational resources, and more.
The United Thank Offering (UTO) Board is pleased to announce the availability of its 2023 UTO Annual Grants, with a focus on the worldwide incarceration crisis. These grants are awarded for projects in The Episcopal Church and throughout the Anglican Communion, each year with a different focus.
Grant application deadlines are 5 p.m. ET Jan. 6, for Anglican Communion partners, and 5 p.m. ET March 10, for dioceses of The Episcopal Church.
