Dear MDD Chalice Lighter:

Thank you for your generous commitment to growing our faith by helping other UU Churches in the Mountain Desert District (MDD). The first call for FY21 is to assist the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ogden, Utah with an accessibility building project.

The building campaign co-chair writes, “Lack of accessibility has long been a problem for us with some church members and many visitors unable to fully enjoy congregational life. Our plans include installing a wheelchair lift, remodeling one bathroom to be a fully accessible, unisex facility, to upgrade parking lot signage, and to improve handrail systems inside and outside the building.”

They launched a congregation campaign in December with a goal to reach $48,000. Before launching the campaign, they had already raised $18,000, and by May had raised $45,000. They are hoping to start the project within the next 60 days.

You can now have your gift automatically charged to your credit card or debited from your bank account each month. Automatic giving may be set up on the MDD automatic giving page. You can make a one-time donation online at our giving page. We are grateful for whatever you can contribute. Direct costs to administer the call are reimbursed from the donations before the grant is issued. More of your money will go toward the grant if you opt for emailed call letters and make your contribution online. Please see the link to the donation page at Donations for this call will be accepted through October 31, 2020.

If you are mailing a check, make it payable to MDD Chalice Lighters and mail to the new address below. If you utilize a third party to issue checks, please give them the updated address.
