Benevolences are funds dedicated from the yearly Outreach budget to specific organizations. In most cases, someone from the UPC congregation is active in some way with each of these organizations. If not, Outreach committee members visit the organization to determine the organization's goals and purposes and to ensure that monetary donations will be used to support causes important to UPC and the greater good. Non-profit organizations are considered for benevolence funding based on the following:
  • Humanitarian service
  • Helps the neediest and most vulnerable
  • Non-discriminatory and open to all
  • Promotes social justice
  • Helps to serve the Kingdom of God
  • Collaborates with others
  • Uses volunteers effectively
  • High percentage of funds used for program outcomes
