Countdown to transmitting Ingathering offerings to UTO

Countdown to transmitting Ingathering offerings to UTO 380 366 Episcopalians in Connection

Only 65 days until Christmas! My neighbor across the street decorates their house with a Snoopy countdown clock which is prominently displayed. By opening my front door in the month of December, I know exactly many days, hours and minutes are left until Christmas day. In our UTO world of FAQs, the question of deadlines for submitting year-end Ingathering offerings is in the top five behind grant process questions.

Here is a chart with deadlines, address, and a live online link:

Give – United Thank Offering

 Notice, Give  Make  Bless

The UTO is supported by the offices of the Domestic & Foreign Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church aka The Episcopal Church. The offices close in mid-December for Christmas Break. UTO deadlines are driven by the mid-December close. We are extremely grateful for the financial, communications and staff support from The Episcopal Church that makes our ministry possible.

We thank our Coordinators for making their remitters/treasurers/boards aware of the deadlines. Each coordinator may operate in a slightly different context. We appreciate you navigating the process and following-up with the responsible parties in your dioceses and parishes. COVID has made it difficult to track which churches participate in UTO. If the remitter would clearly identify the individuals, church or churches contained within the total offering, UTO can both acknowledge the donations and provide a tax receipt as applicable. If you have any questions, please email Heather or Isabelle or

Thank you for your year-end gifts and your Christmas gifts to UTO.  They are an investment in gratitude manifested in grants to innovative and transformational ministries in the church.  Communities throughout the Anglican Communion are blessed by your generosity for the long-term.
