The United Thank Offering is a program of The Episcopal Church administrated by the Episcopal Church Women in the Diocese of Chicago. The United Thank Offering (UTO) encourages the discipline of setting aside coins in thanksgiving for blessings received. Many Episcopalians remember the "Blue Box" placed on the dining table or kitchen counter.
Twice yearly, these thank offerings are collected and blessed at the ECW Annual Meeting and Fall Forum (now Retreat). All funds collected through these thank offerings are gathered with offerings from across the country to provide grants to parishes and social service agencies connected to the Episcopal Church.
Helen Mensing, the Diocesan Coordinator for the UTO is available to present the UTO to your parish. Helen may be reached at: UTO@ECWChicago.org.
