The United Thank Offering is a program of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole Church, founded by and administered by women since 1889.
The United Thank Offering Committee is a spiritual and financial partner in the mission work of The Episcopal Church, through every person in every pew. UTO is entrusted to promote thank offerings, to receive the offerings, and to distribute the United Thank Offering monies through grants.
The Committee awards and administers these grants within the framework of the policies and procedures of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS) of The Episcopal Church.
The Sunday before the national Thanksgiving holiday seems to be an especially appropriate time of year to honor the United Thank Offering tradition.
