Thank you for your generous support of the UUMA Scholarship Fund

I am honored to be the one to write to you on behalf of the UUMA Board and Staff to say Thank You.
Thank you for your generous support of the UUMA Scholarship Fund. Because of your help, we were able to offer over $25,000 in scholarship funds in 2014 to:
Ø help colleagues get to Ministry Days
Ø help colleagues get to the Institute coming up in January
Ø help all of our 50-year celebrants who could use some help to get to GA in Portland in June (for the first time ever!).
It can be a particular burden for some of our colleagues to get to UUMA events that help us all grow into stronger, wiser, more excellent ministers. That might include those serving in part-time ministries in community and parish settings, students, those serving small congregations and far-away congregations, and all those whose professional expense budgets are either too small or non-existent. It matters, it matters a lot that so many of you make this outreach possible. One of the things that makes the UUMA so strong is our shared commitment to mutual support; to ministry with and to one another.
So I am every bit as honored to be the one to ask you to continue your support of our UUMA Scholarship Fund, for we have invested every single penny you have so generously given us in scholarships. Can you give again in this season of giving? I know that if you can, you will, for you care as much as I to ensure that the path to continuing education is one we walk down together, all of us.

With a grateful heart, and every wish for peace, joy, good health and successful ministry in 2015.
