Outreach Offering

Most weekends, the funds collected during services are shared 50/50 with community organizations that support our values. The majority of these groups are small, local nonprofits we partner with in working toward equity and justice.

Most recipients are not duplicated from year-to-year. Any FUS member may nominate an organization or project. An electronic form is available below, or you can contact the Social Justice Coordinator to receive a paper form. Priority is given to organizations meeting pressing needs locally or regionally.

In the 2015-16 year, our congregation donated $27,888.65 to 22 organizations through our outreach offering program.

For questions, please contact the Social Justice Coordinator, Tim Cordon, at timc@fusmadison.org.
