Guidelines for Change for the World (CFTW)

The Social Justice Committee of UUCV uses the following guidelines in choosing Change for the World recipients that are recommended by congregants or members of the Committee:

Funds collected will be donated to organizations or groups providing needed services that are in keeping with UUCV’s mission and the UU principles.  Special consideration will be given to local groups for whom a donation of $500 – $700 dollars might be crucial.

UUCV members who wish to nominate a recipient of CFTW are required to submit a UUCV CFTW Proposal form (located on the SJC table in the Social Hall).  Proposed nominations will be reviewed by the UUCV Social Justice Committee on a quarterly basis.  Please note the SJC reserves the right to make special selections during emergency situations, such as was done for hurricane relief.

Complete the form included below and return to Dee Lauderbaugh [email protected]

For more information, please contact a member of the Social Justice


Our congregation is committed to practicing generosity to communities in need beyond our walls. During our offering collection on Sunday mornings, we have a practice of dropping loose change into a basket for the purpose of supporting organizations dedicated to changing lives for better. Of course, more than change is often donated by check or specifying the CTFW Fund on our Online Donation Form.

Want to put forth a worthy organization?  Follow these guidelines to nominate a Change for the World Recipient.
