Grant proposals are due by Saturday, February 28th 2023

Purpose: The Ingeborg Lock Opportunity Grant is a seed grant that invites initiative and creativity in the community in addressing social, ecological and environmental concerns consistent with Ingeborg Lock’s legacy of generosity during her lifetime. Grants will support work or projects that exemplify one or more of the UUA principles in the context of local/community issues or concerns.

As a reference, the UUA principles are

  1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
  8. Affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions

A few considerations: 

  1. Proposals may be submitted by an individual or by a group. 
  2. The scope of the project submitted should be 4-12 months (or ongoing if it’s a long-term initiative).
  3. Grant funds will be distributed in two allotments, the first at the time of the award and the second following evidence of progress gleaned from an interim report to the review committee. Note: If the project is in need of the grant money up front (in full), then the individual or group can request that this is needed to get the project up and running.
  4. The seed grant value will not exceed $2000.
