Susan B. Anthony Fund

Proceeds from Holiday Shop after costs and expenditures are used to support MVUC’s Susan B. Anthony (SBA) Fund.

These funds are made available to purchase items or services for the church that would not normally be covered by the operating budget. SBA money is meant to used for one time items such as “It would be nice to have…” rather than “We need to fix, replace, cover the cost of…”. Over the years, the SBA Fund has supported new carpets, new chairs, General Assembly trips, hardscaping projects on the grounds, UUA workshops, outdoor benches, a dishwasher replacement, hearing accessories, outdoor lighting, and dozens of other items.

After Holiday Shop, members are invited to submit requests for funds from the SBA Fund to the SBA Committee. Application forms, which are in the SBA mailbox at church and available for download online may be submitted by committees, groups, staff, individuals, and the Board. Requests must be submitted by January 31.

The SBA Committee is made up of 3 representatives from the Every Thursday (ET) Group, and one representative from several of the relevant program committees. The minister is a non-voting member of the SBA Committee. The committee reviews all requests and makes a recommendation to the Board of Trustees on which items should be funded. The BOT must approve the recommendations before any money is spent.
