Mountain Desert District Emergency Relief Fund
Standing in solidarity with all who have experienced the devastation of the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs, the High Park fire in Ft. Collins, the Flagstaff fire in Boulder, the Pine Ridge fire in Grand Junction, Lightner Creek/Weber fires burning in Durango and other fires burning in Montana at the same time, we are establishing The Mountain Desert District Emergency Relief Fund.
This Fund will allow us to offer timely financial assistance to our Unitarian Universalist community as they begin to recover and rebuild following the fires. Informed by other districts where fires have raged we know there can be serious secondary impact from a fire-smoke damage, health problems, loss of employment, etc. Even with good insurance many families will incur unexpected costs due to the fires.
As we pray for containment of these wild fires we recognize the continued vulnerability of these communities to flash flooding and other natural disasters heightened by the fires. This fund will become a continuing source of assistance across the mountain west. Please give collected items to other non-profit agencies in your area.
The District Board will appoint a small task force to make awards from the fund. Procedures to apply for assistance will be available on this website very soon.
Please donate online through Paypal by using the following link:

Thank you for your contribution. Together we can recover!

The MDD Board and staff remain most grateful for ongoing support of the district’s Chalice Lighters Program – an amazing outreach of financial assistance between Unitarian Universalists in Mountain Desert District and our congregations.
Our first Chalice Lighter call this year is for the San Juan Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Farmington, NM. This small congregation owns their own building and takes care of it themselves. Recently, they recognized the need for renovation of their bathrooms to provide safe accessibility and family support with a changing table. Rather than simply add grab bars they will completely renovate two bathrooms. We all know that nice bathrooms are one of the signatures of a welcoming and thoughtful congregation. This Chalice Lighter grant will help them with the expenses of bringing their building up to the standards we all want to provide so that all may worship with us in comfort.
Please be generous in your support of the San Juan Unitarian Universalist Fellowship as they update their facilities to welcome more visitors and members. Please see the Chalice Lighters page for more information about how you can contribute.
Thank you for your contribution to growing Unitarian Universalism in the mountain west!
