The Chalice Lighter Program assists the growth of new and existing member congregations in the Pacific Northwest District by providing grants to help advance vital aspects of their formal growth plans. Grants are funded exclusively through contributions from Unitarian Universalists who participate as Chalice Lighters. The Chalice Lighter Coordinating Team advises the District Executive on the program; its members are UU volunteers from around the district.

Chalice Lighter grants are intended to help congregations by providing funds to implement a significant part of their growth plan and may be used to:

  • secure or increase professional religious leadership
  • help a congregation secure, improve or furnish a building
  • reach out to the community to attract new members
  • initiate a new congregation
  • fund any other creative program to facilitate growth
 Our congregation has benefited from Chalice Lighter grants in the past and may be making requests in the future. Through many people giving modest amounts, we all help each other through this program.
