Every year, TUCC has the privilege and joy of offering grants from several of our Designated Funds. These grants aim to foster innovative ministry, support social justice, contribute to community relief projects, facilitate United Church camping, promote reconciliation initiatives, offer leadership training, and recognize the contributions of youth and young adult volunteers. Contributions to these funds come from donors, congregations, former extension councils, other supporters, and individuals who have designated legacy gifts to TUCC, recognizing the profound and transformative impact of charitable giving.
